Since the holidays have now past I have many pot luck side dishes to post. Here is another crowd pleaser with lots of cheese, cream and potatoes yum!
Scalloped Potato Gratin
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 sprig fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Italian four cheeses, plus more for broiling
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a saucepan, heat up the cream with a sprig of thyme, chopped garlic and nutmeg.
While cream is heating up, butter a casserole dish. Place a layer of potato in an overlapping pattern and season with salt and pepper. Remove cream from heat, then pour a little over the potatoes. Top with some grated cheese. Make 2 more layers. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle some more cheese and broil until cheese browns, about 5 minutes.
