Holiday Potato Casserole with Gouda, Garlic, and Thyme
Why This Recipe Works
For a potato casserole recipe that would showcase the potatoes instead of the dairy and complement, not overwhelm, the other dishes on the table, we used a mix of russet (for denseness and flavor) and Yukon Gold (for succulence) potatoes. We eliminated the cream from our potato casserole recipe but found that some dairy was necessary to bind the layers of potato together. Gouda cheese, in combination with a velouté sauce made from chicken stock, flour, and butter, did the trick.
