Paula Deen's Boursin Cheese Potatoes

Here is the veggie side dish that we did for the XMAS dinner. How could one resist Boursin cheese potatoes... Like a scalloped potato with all of the goodness that one needs to make some hefty new year's resolutions not to be so hefty!

3 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled
salt and pepper to taste
1 pint heavy cream
one 5 oz package of boursin cheese
fresh chives or parsley for a garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and slice potatoes into 1/4 inch rounds (I used a mandolin to ensure that they were even). Toss potatoes with salt and pepper. Heat cream and cheese together on the stovetop until cheese has melted. Layer half of the potatoes into a 2 quart baking dish (better with a deep dish than a long flat one). cover the potatoes with half of the cream mixture, then layer the last of the potatoes on top. Finish with the last of the cream. Cover and back for one hour.

Note: as I was lacking oven space, I used the slowcooker for this dish. Cooked for approx 5 hours on low....think that the oven option might be better results but this was great in a pinch
