For an easy but delicious baked potato dish, try this simple recipe. It has a similar creaminess to potatoes dauphinoise but is much simpler to throw together. There's no need to make a sauce on the stovetop or boil the potatoes first. You simply slice the potatoes and layer them in a baking dish with heavy cream and garlic for a satisfying side dish.
This recipe for creamy baked potatoes proves, once again, that sometimes it is incredibly easy to put delicious food on the table. Your kids will be thrilled. For an easy Shavuot meal, serve these dairy potatoes after the soup along with the salmon and salad and before the cheesecake.
"I used a mandoline to slice the potatoes, which made it very fast and easy to put this dish together. The top came out beautifully browned and the potatoes were nicely creamy. I would recommend using at least 2 teaspoons of kosher salt since the potatoes and cream need a good amount of seasoning." —Young Sun Huh
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 450 F/230 C. Spray a 3-quart baking pan with cooking spray.
Wash, peel, and cut potatoes into very thin slices using a sharp knife or a mandoline.
Lay the potatoes in the pan.
Add the cream and minced garlic to the potatoes. Generously season with salt and pepper. To add some color, sprinkle some paprika on top.
Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes. The potatoes should be tender.
- This dish makes for a very messy pan. To clean the casserole dish, let the pan soak for at least a half-hour with hot water and soap before scrubbing.
- Add sautéed onions on top of the potatoes before baking.
- To make this dish extra rich and indulgent, top with cheese. After baking covered for 45 minutes, uncover, and add shredded Gruyère or cheddar cheese on top.
- Use russet potatoes instead of Yukon Golds.
