I've read about 'em more than once over on Delena's blog, the recipe for 'em comes from Mrs. Thetimman... enough already, I'm gonna make 'em! As a side dish to our Easter dinner, the main dish of which will be a spiral-sliced honey-glazed ham, I will serve the now-famous Smoked Gouda Potatoes:
Smoked Gouda Scalloped Potatoes
2 lbs Russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 or 1/8-inch thin
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 lb smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
7 oz can diced green chiles
white pepper (I'll use black)
1 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In 13x9-inch pan, layer half the potatoes, parmesan, gouda and chiles. Salt and pepper to taste. Then add remaining potatoes, chiles, parmesan, and gouda. (Be sure to cover chiles with cheese to "hide" them.) Add additional salt and pepper, to taste. Pour cream around sides of the pan.
Bake for 20 minutes, uncovered. Cover with foil. Bake an additional 40 minutes, or until potatoes reach desired tenderness.
Yields up to 10 servings.

Don't they just look delicious?? I can't wait. My mouth is watering for our Easter Sunday feast!
But we still have the most important last days of Lent to go through first. I'm just getting excited......
God bless you all!
