When your main dish recipe needs a decadent side dish sidekick, there’s nothing like a creamy, thyme-infused cheesy potatoes au gratin recipe to do the job, and to do it easily too.
Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, then add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring until garlic becomes fragrant. Add the onions, thyme leaves and kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook until onions become soft, stirring occasionally, for about 4-5 minutes.
Stir in the cream and chicken broth then add the potato slices and bay leaves and bring to a rolling simmer. Cover and reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are nearly fork tender.
Begin stacking the potatoes with the sauce in a 1 ½ quart baking dish (an 8 X 8 or 9 X 6) sprinkling half of the cheeses as you layer. Sprinkle the potatoes with the remaining cheeses.
Refrigerate for an hour or up to overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes or until the cream is bubbling around the edges and the cheese is golden brown. Let rest for 5-10 minutes until serving.
