Instructions

  1. Wash the potatoes, peel them and slice them (the thinner the better)
  2. Preheat the oven to 420 F
  3. Set aside 1/4 of the heavy cream
  4. As if you were preparing lasagna, in a baking dish, begin to lay the layers of cream and slices of potatoes. Keep repeating the process until you are out of both. I usually start with the cream and work my way up
  5. Once you have finished your layers top it off with Parmesan cheese
  6. Place it in the oven for two hours, or until the potatoes are tender and the cheese is melted

Tuesday
