“These are the easiest, creamiest potatoes au gratin I have ever had... YUM!” - by Celeste
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese topping is crisp and brown on top, about 1 hour.

"The following is my review for this outstanding recipe that I reviewed when it was still a personal recipe.

"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 exactly..." See more the same next time. These are, indeed, rich and creamy and develop a beautiful and extra delicious golden brown crust as they bake. I loved the subtle flavor of the nutmeg (fresh does make a big difference I believe), which was an ideal choice to enhance, just slightly, the flavor of the potatoes as well as that gorgeous Gruyere cheese. Not only were these a decadent taste sensation, they were remarkably easy to assemble as well – no sauce to prepare, just layer cream and cheese! After sampling these it will be interesting to see if I ever go back to traditional au gratin potatoes prepared with cheddar again."
"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 as wr..." See moreitten. Celeste, this is another winning recipe, thank you for sharing it with us."
