Potato Cheese Gratin

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Side Dishes, Cheese

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Lg. cloves garlic *
  • 4 Lg. potatoes **
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 c Grated gruyere cheese
  • 2 pt Whipping cream


* Garlic cloves should be peeled and split.

** Potatoes should be peeled and sliced paper-thin. (Slice at the last
minute so that they do not darken; do not soak in cold water).

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Rub the bottom and sides of a gratin
dish with the cut sides of the garlic. Leave the garlic in the dish. Cover
with a layer of potatoes. Sprinkle with some salt and freshly ground pepper
and cheese. Pour some cream over the whole thing. Repeat until all the
potatoes, cream, and cheese are used. Place the pan, uncovered in the oven.
(Put a baking sheet underneath to catch spills.) Bake for 1 hour or more,
until the top is browned and the cream has cooked down to a thick sauce.
During the first 1/2 hour of cooking, use a broad spatula to push the top
layers of potatoes into the cream every once in a while. Serve hot, at room
temerature or cold. * I use evaporated Skim milk instead of cream, also
have used several different kinds of cheese.
