Looking for Perfect Au-gratin Potatoes

VD 2015 Dinner for 11.

I read a post post here for a dish without too much of a sauce, which is what I am looking for just for plating purposes, but I have a few other questions. This will be my first attempt at this dish, but I have done my homework.

What is the best potato to use? Which one NOT to use?

I want to use a Parmesan cheese. What other cheeses would do well with that? I am thinking white cheddar. (I will use heavy cream not broth.)

I am serving a formal dinner for 11 and not sure on how many potatoes I will need. 1 PP if it is a decent size? I am ok for leftovers. :D I would like a nice garnish to plate, thinking broccolini.

Main Course is a Standing Rib with Grilled Asparagus Spears starting with a Cesar salad.

Share with me your wisdom!
