  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place potatoes, garlic, and salt into a large pot, fill with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer the potatoes until tender but not mushy, 8 to 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer about half the potatoes to a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Pour half of the cream over the potatoes, season with black pepper and nutmeg, and sprinkle half of the Gruyere cheese onto the mixture. Top with the remaining potatoes; sprinkle again with black pepper and nutmeg. Pour on the remaining cream, and sprinkle with remaining Gruyere cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese topping is crisp and brown on top, about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You might want to put some foil on the lower shelf in the oven in case it spills over, or cook on lipped pan.

The following is my review for this outstanding recipe that I reviewed when it was still a personal recipe. Reviewed on Nov. 22, 2011 by Avon Thanks Celeste for the perfect, perfect au gratin po...

Potato perfection. I chose to slice my potatoes a little thicker, perhaps between 1/8 and 1/4 inch, and only boiled them a few minutes to ensure they would not be reduced to mush. I’d do so e...

Recipe Group selection 3/17/12. My only deviation from the recipe was using Jarlesburg in place of Greuyere, which was $21.99/lb. This was so good with the lesser cheese, I can just imagine it...

For those of you who are hesitant to try this recipe because of the cost of Gruyere, I have a tip. Grate cheap grocery store brand Swiss cheese; it costs roughly $3 per pound instead of $18 or s...

Made this for Recipe Group...This is potato perfection!!! I could not believe how easy this was to prepare and the end result was fantastic...everyone RAVED! I had planned a different potato rec...

Celeste...these potatoes are so yummy! Quick to put together and so creamy, my family loved this dish. I nearly broke the bank on the Gruyere but it was so worth it!

Made this for Easter dinner, which meant there wouldn't be a lot of time to prepare it after the morning church service. I made the entire dish up to the point where it was ready to bake the ni...

It was very good. If you happen to have a Trader Joe's around town, get their cheddar/gruyere cheese blend and use that. It was perfect and not as expensive as a pure gruyere cheese. I also a...

These weren't awful. I just felt they were a little bland and not worth the cost of the cheese you put in.
