Parmesan Potatoes Au Gratin

Written by Diana - February 3, 2009 3 Comments

Parmesan Potatoes Au Gratin I wanted to post this last night, but I was too busy watching the Superbowl (and taking nap – don’t tell anyone but I slept through some of it). My husband went to a brother’s home to watch the Steelers play.  I made some Parmesan Potatoes Au Gratin for him to bring and share with everyone( which was really only two other people).  My son had school today so we stayed home and monitored the game from home without all the ruckus.  This is a really good side dish, easy to make, and the garlic and parmesan is very fragrant.  I have a mandolin that I use to slice the potatoes to a medium thickness  and onions into really thin even slices. You can substitute Romano for Parmesan in this dish or do a mix of both. I know it was good because my husband brought home the dish – totally sparking clean.  Sharon & John – we know what you have in your fridge.


Spray casserole dish with cooking spray, or use oil or butter to coat the sides and bottom of the dish. Layer the Potatoes, onions & garlic slices, sprinkle the layers with cheese, salt and pepper . Add the cream and thyme into a saucepan and warm it.  Every couple of layers pour warm cream over the potatoes. Cover with foil and bake at 4:20 for about 40 minutes and then broil uncovered 5 minutes.

    This looks SO good! My hubby will eat almost anything but au gratin potatoes he hates and I so miss them! This one though with the parm maybe he could deal with. I may have to give it a try!

    Natasha – it’s really lovely to look at, the picture just doesn’t do it justice. It is such a nice golden brown with a great aroma.

    Robyn – I’ve decided I like this much better than the other au gratin potatoes, my husband also…. and I guess my brother in law and his girlfriend too, don’t ya think?
