There are 4 layers in this scalloped potatoes recipe. Each layer has thinly sliced potatoes (1/8 inch thick), salt, minced garlic, shredded Parmesan cheese, fresh thyme, and heavy cream:

After layering your casserole dish with the scalloped potatoes, bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour. While baking, the shredded Parmesan cheese melts and combines with heavy cream, coating the potatoes, producing the most delicious, cheesy scalloped potatoes ever!

    Do you think I could add a little shredded white cheese, i.e. swiss or mozzarella toward the end of cooking on top?
