  • 2 Cups Freshly Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

  • Bring the mixture to a simmer then remove from the heat and stir in the cheddar, parmesan, and chopped broccoli.

FOR THE POTATOES:

  • Wash the potatoes and peel off all of the skin.
  • Use a mandoline, sharp chef's knife, or food processor to slice the potatoes into 1/8 inch slices.
  • Layer half of the potatoes in the prepared baking dish and pour over half of the broccoli cheddar sauce.
  • Top the sauce with the remaining potatoes, and remaining sauce.
  • Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil from the pan, sprinkle on the remaining cheese, return the potatoes to the oven and cook for an additional 25-30 minutes until potatoes are cooked through and the top is golden brown.
