Use starchy potatoes like Russet or Yukon Gold for the best texture in the bake.
Feel free to add extra ingredients like cooked bacon, caramelized onions, or chopped herbs to enhance the flavor.
For a lighter version, you can substitute part or all of the heavy cream with milk or a mixture of milk and chicken broth.
Make sure to season each layer of potatoes generously with salt and pepper for balanced flavors.
Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated the next day. The flavors tend to develop even more, making it even more delicious.
