 Ingredients List

  • 4 garlic cloves, one clove cut in half lengthwise, remaining cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 5 slices hearty white sandwich bread, crusts removed and torn into pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Rub cut side of halved garlic on the bottom and sides of a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Let dry 2 minutes and then rub softened butter all over dish to coat well.
In a large saucepan, bring cream, broth, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and pepper, plus the minced garlic to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to 2 1/2 cups, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in potatoes.
Spoon half of potato mixture into prepared dish. Sprinkle with half of both cheeses.
Add remaining potato mixture on top of cheese.
Arrange bread pieces on top of potatoes and press down on them with a spatula so that they soak up some liquid.
Place in oven and bake uncovered for 40 minutes.
Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake another 25 to 30 minutes.
Let rest 20 minutes before serving.
