from Southern Living Magazine

Wonderful with ham!

  • 2 Cups heavy cream (Or 1 cup heavy cream, 1 cup milk.)
  • 1 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 lb russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups freshly grated Gruyere cheese
  • 2 TBSP freshly grated parmesan

Preheat oven to 350.

Stir together first five ingredients in a medium sized bowl, let stand 5 minutes.potatoes-patio-l

Place a single layer of potatoes in a buttered 13 X 9 inch baking dish.

Pour 1/4 cup of the cream mixture over the potatoes, sprinkle with 1/4 cup Gruyere cheese.

Repeat 7 times.

Top with parmesan.

Bake for 45 minutes until potatoes are golden brown and cooked through.

Cool for ten minutes.

** Delicious! Mine needed more than 45 minutes. Leave yourself extra time incase potatoes are not cooked through- check for doneness by inserting a fork-  it should glide in very easily.

** 2 cups of cream is rich, I prefer half and half, or 1 cup of milk, 1 of cream.
