For the Potatoes:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 pounds russet potatoes sliced into 1/8-inch slices
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
For the Parmesan Panko Topping:
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent and softened. Add the garlic and continue cooking for another minute. Stir in the cream and vegetable broth. Season with the salt and pepper. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender. Poke with a fork to check. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
Transfer half of the potatoes and cream mixture to a greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle half of the cheeses evenly over the potatoes. Layer the rest of the potatoes over the cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the second layer of potatoes.
Make the Parmesan Panko topping. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, Panko bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine. Sprinkle topping over the potatoes.
Bake potatoes until bubbly and the top begins to brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
