  • 2.2 lb russet potato sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 4 oz onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp thyme dried
  • 1 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 3 oz mozzarella cheese shredded


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Melt butter over medium heat in a pot, then sautée onions and garlic for about 3 minutes, or until translucent.
  • Stir in flour, salt, pepper, chicken stock, milk, and cream, and cook for 3 minutes, or until it starts to bubble.
  • Arrange the potato slices in the casserole dish in even layers and pour the sauce over them. Using a spatula, fill all visible gaps with onion bits to get a nice, flat surface.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for 1 hour.
  • Uncover and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Broil for about 3-4 minutes, or until it is golden brown on the surface.
  • Sprinkle thyme and serve.
