thijme.
Add potato slices and stir gently a few times so that all slices are coated with cream.
pour the potato mixture in the lined baking tin,press down with your hand so the potatoes are compact
in the tin.
Sprinkle potatoes with cheese and butter in small pieces. Place on rack in middle of oven and bake
between 45-60 minutes. take out of the oven and cool for 30 minutes…then place some tin foil or
parchment paper on top and weigh down with something heavy like tins from the storage cupboard.
