Scalloped Potatoes with Gruyere
These Scalloped Potatoes with Gruyere are rich and creamy and so delicious!
- 1 clove garlic smashed
- 2 tablespoons butter unsalted
- 2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potaotes peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick
- 2 cups half and half
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme chopped
- freshly ground black pepper
- pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
- 2 cup Gruyere cheese grated
Preheat the oven to 350. Rub the garlic on the inside of an 8x8x2 casserole dish. Mince the rest of the garlic and use some of the butter to grease the inside of the casserole dish.
Put the potatoes in a large saucepan with the garlic, butter, half and half, thyme, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and cook stirring until the mixture has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes.
Spoon the mixture into the greased casserole dish and bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Top with the cheese and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
