I made these potatoes for an Au Gratin Potato lover and he said he is now ruined for all other Au Gratin Potatoes! They are made with Manchego cheese which I could only find at Sam's Club and Costco. It is kinda pricey, but worth it. These are some pretty tasty potatoes!
Manchego Au Gratin Spuds
Pour 1/2 C. heavy cream in the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish. Arrange a layer of peeled sliced potatoes on top overlapping them. Pour 1/2 C. cream over the potatoes and sprinkle 3 Tbsp. chopped green pimento stuffed olives and 1 C. Manchego cheese over the top. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat layering three more times starting with the potatoes. Top final layer with 2 C. Manchego. Cover dish with plastic and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 375*. Replace plastic with tinfoil. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 45 minutes. Let potatoes rest 30 minutes before serving.
I am not a huge fan of leftovers. To give you an indication of how good these are, I ate them five times! Usually, twice is my max.
