Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large stockpot; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and cut into 1/4-in. slices; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt 2/3 cup butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add broth and cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir 1 cup hot cream mixture into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Add the parsley, salt, pepper and cayenne. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  3. Spread 1 cup sauce into each of two 3-qt. baking dishes. Top with a third of the potato slices. Repeat layers twice. Spread with remaining sauce. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over casseroles. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 2 casseroles (12 servings each).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 18, 2011

I'm only giving this recipe 3 stars because I liked the crumb topping (I used panko crumbs) and the texture of the potatoes. Otherwise this is only a 2 star recipe for me. The sauce tastes way too much like a gravy I would put over biscuits. I even tried adding a tad bit of garlic and onion powders, and it was still tasting like gravy. I thought maybe it would taste better once baked and rested. I was wrong. Still tasted like gravy. This recipe really needs something like bacon, and then perhaps starting the sauce in the bacon grease. Or if you eat cheese, maybe some cheddar melted in (I'm not a cheese fan). Or this may be one of those cream of something type of dishes. I could see this working with some homemade cream of chicken soup baked in.
