Notes

Time-Saving Tip: Use a mandoline slicer to help slice the potatoes evenly and quickly.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds red Idaho potatoes, sliced into ⅛-inch pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 4 Ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (about 1 and 1/2 cups)
  • 2 Ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (plus more for garnish—optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Whisk together the flour, chicken broth, and milk in a medium bowl until smooth.

Mix together the Gruyere, Parmesan, onion and thyme in another bowl.

Grease the bottom and sides of your slow cooker with 1/2 tablespoon of the butter.

Spread 1/3 of the potatoes in the slow cooker. Top with 1/3 of the cheese and onion mixture. Top with 1/3 of the chicken broth and milk mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

Repeat two more times.

Drizzle the remaining 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter on top.

Cover and cook on high for 5 hours. Uncover and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.

Serve garnished with extra fresh thyme, if desired.
