Pommes de Terre Gratinées
- 4 large potatoes peeled and thinly sliced (I like to use my Pampered Chef peeler/corer/slicer to do this job)
- 2 cups cream
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups good Swiss or French/Swiss cheese, like Emmanthal, Comté, Gruyère or Raclette (I like to use a combo of whatever I have on hand, so today I had Emmanthal and Raclette)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. herbes de provence
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13X9 baking dish generously with cooking spray (unless you are using stoneware, then don't spray). Place one half of the potatoes in the dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix with your hands to distribute, sprinklewith 1/2 of the cheese. Repeat layer with remaining potatoes, salt and pepper, and cheese. Do not mix the top layer. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream, eggs, garlic, nutmeg and herbes de provence. Pour liquid over the potatoes evenly. Bake covered with foil for 1 hour or until potatoes are soft and knife inserted comes out clean. Uncover and cook for another 5-10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and browning.
