Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease 8-cup casserole dish with butter.

In large bowl, toss Gouda and cheddar to combine. Reserve 1 cup of the cheese mixture in small bowl. 

Add cream, onion, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper to large bowl, stirring to combine. Add potatoes; using hands, toss until well coated.

Stack potato slices into neat piles; place in tight rows in prepared pan, standing up on edge. Scrape cream mixture over top to reach halfway up side of pan; discard any excess cream. Cover tightly with foil; place on baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour; remove foil and sprinkle with reserved cheese mixture. Bake, uncovered, until browned and tender when pierced, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving. 

Test Kitchen Tip: Use a mandoline to quickly and evenly cut potatoes into thin slices.

Makes 12 to 14 servings.
