    Everyone knows that I love potatoes, I could eat them day in and day out and never get tired of them. Ever. They are a blank canvas waiting to be painted, and absorb all of the delicious flavors you pair them with. I think potatoes make the best side dishes!

    So while I was making Herbed Potato Pie, I accidentally forgot to include the shallots until after I had assembled the potatoes in the dish. Instead of removing it all, I just layered it on top of the potatoes and then covered it with cheese. Worked just as well and gave it a pretty purple hue floating under the cheese.

    Ingredients
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • 1 1/2 cups half & half
    • 1/3 cup shallots , finely minced
    • 3 cloves garlic , minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
    • 1/ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1 cup Swiss cheese , divided and shredded
    • 2-3 large Russet potatoes , peeled and cut into 1/8 inch slices
    • Cooking Spray
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
    2. Heat butter in a medium sauce pan. When butter has melted, whisk in flour to create a roux. Continue to whisk until mixture turns a very light brown and has a nutty smell, approximately 4-5 minutes.
    3. Whisk in half & half, then add shallots, garlic, rosemary, parsley, thyme, fine sea salt, white pepper and 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese. Remove from heat and set aside.

    4. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Layer potatoes in a circular fashion. After you complete one layer, cover with just enough half & half mixture to cover it.  Repeat layers until potatoes reach the lip of your pie plate. Pour remaining half & half mixture over potato slices. 

    5. Bake, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender and mixture is bubbly. Remove and cover with remaining 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Return to the oven until cheese has melted, approximately 5-10 minutes.
    6. Remove and allow to set for 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
