With Easter and the preparations for the family dinner fast approaching, the scramble to find new, tasty and exciting recipes is a constant challenge. This potato recipe is one the whole family will love. It is easy, tastes decadent and goes with most dishes.
2 pounds red potatoes (about 6-8)
2 cups heavy cream
3 cups grated Swiss Gruyere cheese
Fresh ground Tellicherry pepper to taste
Few gratings of fresh nutmeg
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Lightly butter a 12 inch baking pan. Scrub the potatoes well and blot them dry. Do not peel. Slice the potatoes thin, divide into 3 equal portions.
2. Pour about 1/4 cup of the cream into the bottom of the pan. Lay 1/3 of the sliced potatoes evenly in rows on top of the cream.
3. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese on top of the potato slices. Pour 1/3 of the cream over this. Grind a little pepper and nutmeg over top. Repeat this until you have 3 even layers.
4. Finish the dish by sprinkling the Parmesan cheese over the top. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 20 minutes, or until the top is browned and the potatoes are tender.
