Serves: 8
Total Calories: 598


4 large russet potatoes
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese shredded
2 tablespoons butter


1. Peel the potatoes and cut into slices about 3?8 inch thick.
2. Finely mince the onion.
3. Place the potato slices in a large pot with enough water to cover by an inch or so. Bring to a gentle boil and partially cook for 20 minutes or until tender but firm.
4. Transfer the slices to a bowl of cold water. When cool, drain them well and pat dry. Arrange the slices in a single layer in a 13 x 9 inch casserole or baking dish.
5. Mix together the breadcrumbs, garlic, onions, and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
6. Sprinkle about a third of the breadcrumb mixture over the layer of potatoes. Next add a layer of cheddar cheese (about a third). Top with dots of butter. Repeat the layers.
7. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 1 hour. Let rest about 10 minutes before serving.

Important tip
When boiling the potatoes in Step 3, don’t let them get too soft or they will fall apart when you layer them.
