  • 4 Tablespoons Butter unsalted
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 Dash Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth Vegetable works too
  • 1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper Fresh Ground Black
  • 1 Teaspoon Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • 8 Ounces Tillamook Sour Cream
  • 2 1/4 Cups Tillamook Farmstyle Thick Cut Cheddar Jack Shredded Cheese
  • 2 1/4 Cups Tillamook Farmstyle Thick Cut Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Fresh Grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° and spray a 3qt baking dish with a non stick spray. Set aside.
  • Peel and thinly slice potatoes, approximately 1/8-1/4" thick. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over low flame then add onions and garlic. Saute for about 4-5 minutes or until tender.
  • Sprinkle flour and nutmeg over onion mixture, stir and cook for a couple minutes.
  • Pour the broth into pan and stir, add salt and pepper, seasoning and heavy cream. Stir until thickened, remove from heat just prior to boiling and add a cup of each cheese, stirring to combine.
  • Layer 1/3 of the potato slices in a sprayed baking dish then add 1/3 of the sour cream and 1/3 of the cheese sauce over the potatoes.
  • Top with 1/3 of the Parmesan, 1/3 cheddar jack cheese and 1/3 of sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Repeat layering 2 more times ending with cheddar cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan. Cover with foil and place in oven. Cook for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, until potatoes are tender.
  • About 15 - 20 minutes prior to potatoes being done, remove the foil to brown the cheese. Remove from oven, let sit for about 15 minutes to bring the temperature down.
  • Serve with a sprinkle of fresh parsley if desired.
