Potatoes Au Beurre

6 - 8 potatoes
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 Tablespoons parsley
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup whipping cream

Peel and cut potatoes into 1/2 -inch thick strips, like french fries. Layer in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley. Dot with butter, pour cream over top. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly around. Cover with foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours @ 350. Remove cover and bake for 1/2 more or until lightly browned.

You can make them ahead, baking for 1 hour then freeze.

**The phrase "au beurre" means "in butter". These taste very similar to au gratin potatoes.**
