Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 6


  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes peeled & sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1.5 cups heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning
  • 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 350F and move the rack to the middle position.
  • Meanwhile, grate the cheese and prepare the potatoes by peeling them and using a mandoline slicer to cut them into 1/8" (3 mm) slices.
  • Add the butter to a small saucepan over medium-high heat, and once it's melted, add the garlic and cook it for about 30 seconds. Add in the cream and Tony's seasoning. Let it warm through, stirring occasionally, until the seasoning has been fully mixed in. As it reaches a boil, take it off the heat.
  • Arrange half of the potatoes on the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish (overlap the potatoes but don't worry about arranging them perfectly). Pour half the cream mixture over top, and then add half of each cheese. Repeat the process for the second layer, finishing up with a layer of cheese on top.
  • Bake uncovered for 70-75 minutes. Ovens vary, so I would check after 60 minutes if your oven runs hot. A toothpick should slide into the potatoes easily without much resistance.
  • Let the potatoes sit for 5 minutes prior to serving.


  • Serves 4-6 depending on serving size.
  • There is no need to add extra salt in this recipe (Tony's Original Creole Seasoning contains salt). 
  • You may want to place the baking dish on a baking sheet just so any splatter/spills don't end up in your oven.
