Au Gratin Potatoes

Potatoes baked with cheese and creamy deliciousness. Can’t beat it!

Au Gratin Potatoes
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • 3 cups whipping or heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded Gruyère cheese

Preheat oven to 400

Using a very sharp knife or a mandoline, (I recommend investing in one) carefully cut the potatoes into 1/8-inch slices). Put the potatoes in a large heavy-based saucepan and add the cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cook the mixture over medium-high heat until the cream is boiling, stirring occasionally gently so you don’t break up the slices. When the cream boils, pour the mixture into a baking dish. Shake the dish a bit to let the slices settle and then sprinkle the surface with the cheese. Bake in the hot oven until the top is deep golden brown, the cream has thickened, and the potatoes are extremely tender when pierced with a knife, about 40 minutes.
