Warning this is a highly addictive dish. It is wonderful for Thanksgiving.
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
1. Halve the potatoes and toss them into a large baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Meanwhile, put the cream, butter, herbs and garlic in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for about five minutes to infuse the cream with flavor. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Pour the hot cream mixture through a strainer over the potatoes. Discard the herbs and garlic. If there is not enough cream to go three-quarters of the way up the potatoes, pour some additional cream on top to make up the difference. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over the top.
4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through and the top begins to brown. Cover and keep warm until ready to serve.
