Recipe Ingredients for Scalloped potatoes

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Recipe Directions for Scalloped potatoes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the butter in a large pan on top of the stove over high heat and swirl it around to coat the bottom. As the butter begins to sizzle, add the garlic, marjoram, and pepper flakes. As soon as this begins to smell wonderful remove it from the heat. You don't want browned garlic or burned herbs. Fill the pan with layers of sliced potatoes. Broadcast the salt and pepper over the top and wash this down with the half-and-half. Return the pan to the stovetop and turn the heat on full blast. When the butter begins to bubble up through the half-and-half, drizzle the heavy cream all over the top of the potatoes.

  2. Place the gratin in the oven, uncovered, for 60 to 70 minutes. Baste from time to time. The potatoes are done when they are completely tender and the top has become pretty and brown. Let the potatoes rest for 10 minutes before serving.
