Thanksgiving is soon approaching and it is time to plan the menu. For me personally, it is all about the sides. Potatoes are key and there are so many great ways to prepare them. This recipe for Garlic Herb Potato Gratin would be a delicious addition to your table. This dish is decadent and flavorful and your family will love it!
2 1/2 pounds of potatoes
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of whole milk
8 ounces of Gruyere, shredded
3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 package of thyme
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon ground pepper
Set the oven to 350 degrees.
Peel the potatoes.
Cut the potatoes into very thin slices or use a mandoline.
Mince the garlic.
Remove the thyme from the stems.
In a small pan, combine the cream and milk.
Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
Simmer the mixture over medium heat, whisking frequently.
Remove the mixture from heat when bubbles form around the edge of the pan.
Add in the garlic, half of the thyme, and half of the Gruyere and mix well.
In a large casserole, arrange a fourth of the potato slices.
Pour a fourth of the cream mixture over the potatoes.
Continue this process until you have arranged all of the potatoes in your dish and covered them with cream.
Top the dish with the remaining Gruyere and bake it for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
When the dish is golden brown, pull it from the oven.
Garnish it with the remaining thyme and serve!
