Slice potatoes and arrange in a 12 or 14 inch baking pan, lined with foil tucked over the top. (This way there is no pan to wash!) Pour cream over potatoes, sprinkle as much grated cheese as you like, and sprinkle parsley on top of the cheese. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes.
Background: Branding is a spring social event in the Sandhills of Nebraska. The number of calves branded has no direct relation to the number of people showing up. We have had people from both coasts at the same branding. The following is a notation my wife, Donna made in 1958. “17 men, 12 women, 13 children; menu: 24 lb. beef roast, herb potatoes, baked beans, corn with oysters, carrots and peas mixed, potato salad, sweet salad, radishes, celery, pineapple upside down cake. Afternoon was spent visiting, playing horse-shoes and trap shooting. Ten stayed to help clean up left-overs. 318 calves branded.”
