What are the best potatoes to use?
I like to use starchy potatoes for this recipe, yellow, Yukon Gold and Russet all work well. It’s best to stay away from waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings.
Can you make it ahead of time?
This is a great option if you are looking for a make ahead side dish. After the potatoes and cream have been transferred to the baking dish, let them cool completely. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
When ready to cook, bake (covered) about 30 minutes or until heated through. Add the topping and continue baking (uncovered) 15-20 minutes or until hot, bubbly and golden.
