  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons table salt

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Add garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add potatoes, chicken broth, cream, and bay leaves and bring to simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until potatoes are almost tender (paring knife can be slipped into and out of potato slice with some resistance), about 10 minutes. Discard bay leaves.
  3. Transfer mixture to an 8-inch-square baking dish (or 1 ½-quart gratin dish) and press to an even layer; sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake until cream is bubbling around edges and top is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
