  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Place the potatoes into a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 minute. Drain, rinse in cold water to cool, drain again, and pat dry.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese, parsley, salt, pepper and nutmeg. In a measuring cup, whisk the egg with a fork, then fill the cup with enough cream to make 1 cup. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg also.
  4. Arrange a layer of slightly overlapping potato slices in the bottom of the buttered baking dish. Dot with 1/3 of the ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the Gruyere cheese. Repeat layers two more times, and end with a layer of potatoes on top. Pour the egg and cream evenly over the potatoes.
  5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the potatoes are tender, and the cheese is browned and bubbly. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving to allow the sauce to thicken.

Nice light version of the usual gratin. It is a little bland, next time I will add some spice.

I should have read the other review and added garlic. . .or something. The texture was nice, but there was no flavor to these--very bland. Needs something to kick it up.

I wanted to like this so badly. It was very time consuming to make and the ingredients were rather pricey. I was also trying to overlook how unhealthy they are, but when we tasted them, it was...

Very dry, with dotted ricotta mix staying in blobs. This recipe needs a cheese sauce poured over it.

I usually don't like Potatoes Gratin, but I loved the flavor of these with the Gruyere Cheese! Definitely don't sub any other cheese. I added lots of spices in with the ricotta (1 T each of sa...

The texture of these potatoes was absolutely perfect. However, because I didn't have gruyere cheese, and tried to sub-in other types, it turned out a little bland. My boyfriend thought they were...
