Tyler Florence makes amazing potatoes

I was looking for an easy potato recipe to complete our Easter Dinner. I came across this easy recipe for scalloped potatoes. It should be labeled potatoes in cream! We really enjoyed the flavours and there weren't any leftovers. That is always a good sign that it was enjoyed.

Serves:
4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 sprig fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, chopped

Butter
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for broiling
Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a saucepan, heat up the cream with a sprig of thyme, chopped garlic and nutmeg.
While cream is heating up, butter a casserole dish. Place a layer of potato in an overlapping pattern and season with salt and pepper. Remove cream from heat, then pour a little over the potatoes. Top with some grated Parmesan. Make 2 more layers. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle some more Parmesan and broil until cheese browns, about 5 minutes.

OK, those potatoes look totally deadly. In a good way!? I've made Tyler's roast potatoes in the past, and they were good too.
