5-6 large potatoes (enough to fill a 9×13 dish)
1 pint (2 c) whipping cream or half & half
Salt and Pepper
2 c grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp parsley flakes
Cut potatoes into thin French fry strips, and lay them in a greased 9x13” glass pan. Pour cream over the top of the fries. Salt and pepper them generously. Sprinkle at least 2 cups cheese over the top. Sprinkle parsley flakes on top of the cheese. Cover with foil, and poke a fork through the top of the foil, 2 or 3 times to allow a little steam to escape (so the cream doesn’t boil over into your oven). Bake on the middle rack at 400° for about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender. During the last 15-20 minutes of baking, lower the rack one more step to make the bottom of the potatoes, brown and crispy.
