2pounds potatoes (preferably Yukon Gold, others work well too)
1quart heavy cream
1cup shredded Swiss cheese (Emmentaler)
4cloves garlic, sliced thin
Saltand pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and peel potatoes. Slice potatoes very thin, slice to about 1/4 inch thickness. In a large skillet, melt butter, add sliced garlic and lay potatoes into the warmed skillet. Watch the temperature of your skillet, leave it on a low to a low-medium setting, you do not want the garlic to brown.
Cook potatoes for about 10-15 minutes. Salt and pepper potato slices in skillet, stir thoroughly, you want to coat the potatoes with the butter. After about 15 minutes, add 1-quart heavy cream, and add the 1 cup of shredded Emmentaler cheese. Bring the cream and potatoes to a boil, once this mixture has reached a boil, take off of the stove, and place into the oven.
Allow potatoes to cook for approximately 45 minutes or until the top has become golden brown. I hope you enjoy my recipe for lyonnaise potatoes, I love to make these for the holidays. I jokingly call these Lyonnaise potatoes my ten dollar potatoes. Do you have any special dishes that you like to make for the holidays?
