This recipe is quite decadent…use it when you are making a fancy steak and need an easy side dish that tastes like you spent hours over the stove.
2 Tablespoons butter
2 lb. Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 cup heavy cream
Rub 1 Tablespoon of butter on the bottom of a 2 quart baking dish. Overlap potatoes in three layers, sprinkling each layer with a little salt. Pour the half and half over the potatoes, just enough to cover them and dot with remaining butter. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Spoon the heavy cream carefully over the top layer of potatoes and continue baking for another 45 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
