Updated May 7, 2019

Ingredients

  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5 lb russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In 2-quart saucepan, heat heavy cream, garlic, 1 tablespoon thyme leaves, the salt, pepper and nutmeg just to simmering over medium heat. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    Add one-third of the sliced potatoes in overlapping pattern to bottom of slow cooker. Pour 1 cup cream mixture over potatoes; sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the Cheddar cheese. Repeat twice to create 3 total layers of potatoes, cream and cheese.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on High heat setting 4 to 5 hours or until potatoes are fork-tender. Turn off slow cooker, and sprinkle top of potatoes with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and the Parmesan cheese. Cover; let stand 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover; let stand 10 minutes longer to allow mixture to thicken. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon thyme leaves just before serving.
