Herb Scalloped Potatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon minced fresh chives
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, chopped thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the garlic and onion are slightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook until mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes.
