French Scalloped Potatoes

Wendy Rusch


I don't remember where this recipe came from...but have had it 15+ yrs now. It's a great potato recipe to have with most any meat on special holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter especially...ham, turkey, beef roast, lamb chops etc. Of course you can have it anytime...for some reason I only do on thanksgiving... :) too many other recipes for the holidays I think lol
These are so yummy and rich!!!

pinch tips: How to Peel Potatoes





4-6 medium
potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2-3 Tbsp
2 medium
onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp
thyme, ground (i will use tablespoon of fresh)
2 clove
garlic, minced
1/2 tsp
salt, i use nearly 1 tsp.
1/2 tsp
1 Tbsp
1 c
whipping cream
1 c
swiss cheese, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

Arrange 1/2 potatoes into a buttered 9x13 pan, dot with butter, top with onions, sprinkle with thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix cream and corn starch, pour over top. Add 1/2 of the cheese, top with remaining potatoes, sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for about an hour, or until potatoes are golden brown.
I usually make a double batch for family get togethers...I cover the 9x13 with foil for an hour then remove and bake another 30-45 minutes...the extra thickness means extra bake time.
