  • Mandolin Slicer
  • Saucepan
  • 9x13 casserole dish


  • 4 pounds potatoes
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp coarse ground garlic salt
  • 1 dash Tobasco sauce
  • 1 package Colby Jack shredded cheese 12 ounces
  • 1 package Parmesan cheese shredded 12 ounces
  • 1 bunch parsley minced


  • Grease a 9 X 13 dish with Butter, and set aside.
  • In a large heavy-bottom saucepan, place the stick of butter, and melt the butter. Add the flour, and stir well, until it’s completely incorporated and smooth. Add the heavy cream, and whisk until smooth. Add the Garlic Salt, and the dash of Tabasco Sauce, and stir well.
  • Bring sauce to a boil, and turn heat to low, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Stir in the Shredded Cheese, reserving about 1/4 cup of each to sprinkle on top of the dish. 
  • Place about half of the sliced potatoes in the dish, and spoon about half the sauce over the potatoes.
  • Place the remainder of the potatoes in the dish, and spoon the remainder of the sauce over the second layer of potatoes.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top layer of potatoes, and place the dish in the oven.
  • Bake at 350 for about an hour.  Keep watch on the potatoes, making sure the cheese on top doesn’t burn.
  • Remove the dish when baked, and cool slightly before serving. 
  • Top with minced Parsley. Enjoy!


If the cheese gets too dark, cover loosely with foil.
