An easy potato casserole to assemble and bake into a rich, luscious cheese sauce.
1.5 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice potatoes into rounds, 1/4 ” thick.
Layer half of the potatoes into a 10-inch square casserole dish.
Season potatoes with half of the salt and pepper.
Sprinkle seasoned potatoes with 1 cup of cheese.
Pour 1 cup of cream over potatoes and cheese.
Repeat the layers of potatoes, seasonings, cheese, and cream.
Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until a fork pierces through the potatoes easily, then bake 15 minutes more, uncovered, to brown the potatoes until golden.
Slicing the potatoes into the same width allows them to cook evenly; using a mandoline slicer can help cut all potatoes into uniform widths.
Bake a few minutes longer, uncovered, for a browner top.
