  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme crushed
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 4 ounces fontina cheese shredded (1 cup)
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese finely shredded (1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup panko Japanese-style bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, over medium heat. Slice potatoes into ¼-inch slices. Add potatoes to pot and parboil for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are slightly tender. Drain potatoes and return to pot.
  • In a small skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium low and add the garlic. Sauté until tender and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add garlic to potatoes along with cheeses and salt and pepper. Gently stir potatoes to combine ingredients.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 x 2 inch casserole dish. Evenly spread potatoes in the dish. Pour buttermilk over mixture. 
  • Melt remaining three tablespoons of butter and mix with panko breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning. Spread breadcrumbs over top of potatoes.
  • Place pan in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. If breadcrumb topping begins to brown too quickly, loosely cover pan with foil.
