My husband found this recipe when I called and informed him we were going to have guests for dinner. This tasty variation on traditional scalloped potatoes is dressed up with garlic, Swiss cheese and Parmesan cheese. -Glenda Malan, Lake Forest, California

  • 1 teaspoon butter, softened
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Grease a shallow 13x9-in. baking dish with the butter; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the cream, milk, salt, pepper and garlic. Cook just until bubbles begin to form around sides of pan. Remove from the heat; cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes; pat dry with paper towels. Layer half the potatoes in prepared baking dish; top with half the cream mixture and half the cheeses. Repeat layers.
  3. Bake, covered, at 350° for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until potatoes are tender, 20-25 minutes longer. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
