Potatoes Au Gratin Recipe - Potatoes Au Gratin is a side dish that everyone should make at least once a month. It is so good. The flavors of milk, cream, cheese, and potatoes mix to create a heavenly taste.
When a potato recipe calls for the potatoes to be sliced thin, like Potatoes Au Gratin does, you should use a slicer and not a knife. You know the late night infomercials that advertise, “They Slice–They Dice–They Do Everything”? Well it turns out that they work great!! You can pick one up at your local discount store. I promise that it will make cutting potatoes a breeze. And for less than $15 they are a true bargain.
How To Make The Potatoes Au Gratin Recipe
1 clove garlic-halved
2 cups whipping cream
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup cheddar cheese grated
3 1/2 pounds russet potatoes-peeled, thinly sliced (use the slicer)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Scrub and wash the potatoes
Rub the garlic over the inside of a 13×9 inch baking dish.
Place garlic in a saucepan. Add the cream, milk, and nutmeg to the saucepan. Bring to simmer.
Arrange the potatoes in the baking dish just one slice high. Season to taste with salt/pepper.
Repeat layering with remaining potatoes, seasoning each layer as you go.
When half the potatoes are in the dish, pour half the cream mixture over the potatoes.
Finish layering the potatoes.
Pour the other half of the cream mixture over the top of the potatoes.
Bake the potatoes for 1 hour
After baking for one hour, you will need to sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.
Return to oven and bake for 1/2 more hour.
The potatoes should be tender and the top should be golden brown.
