FFwD - pommes dauphinois
There was a hotel I stayed at several times in Baton Rouge that had a steak restaurant next door that delivered room service. Yummy steak. The first time I ordered however I was shocked that I had no choice of potato. It was a fully loaded baked potato or nothing. French fries being the only kind I really enjoy I thought I was going to have to just eat steak that night. Boy was I wrong. Turned out I
like love potatoes when you cover them in butter, cheese bacon and what other yummy ingredients might have been in there. Turns out I also love potatoes sliced thin and baked in heavy cream infused with garlic and topped with cheddar cheese (I used a white cheddar as that's what I had in the house). I will not be making these again anytime soon. Yes you read that correctly. These were too good. I had another helping before bed; I had them for lunch the next day. If I make them too often I'll weigh a tonne!
