Potato & Roasted Red Pepper Dauphinois

“In case you can't tell from the name, this is a French dish - from Lucy Waverman. Thin layers of golden potatoes, roasted red peppers baked in garlic-infused cream - yummy! If red peppers are too expensive, use bottled ones but rinse & dry them well with paper towels. You can substitute whipping (heavy) cream & whole (or 2%) milk in a 50/50 ratio for table (18%) cream.”
