In our house, no holiday table is complete without this delicious, cheesy potato dish. Thereâs just something so comforting and warm in the combination of garlic, cheese, cream and perfect russet potatoes â and itâs a LOT simpler to prepare than mashed potatoes when you have 7 other dishes on the go! If you have only one oven, I recommend popping this in the second your turkey comes out (you can tent the turkey with tinfoil to keep the heat in), and if you have convection capabilities, you can reduce the cooking time by up to 20 minutes. Iâm sure that once you serve this up it will become an annual holiday request â it certainly is with my family!
