Potatoes au Gratin and the richest and cheesiest potatoes around this holiday season. This recipe adds in fresh herbs for added flavour. Let’s get cooking. Oh, and it’s gluten free. Total bonus.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds of potatoes
  • 4 springs of thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
  • 2 1/2 cups of gruyere
  • salt and pepper to taste

First, set your oven to 350 on bake. This recipe takes about 90 minutes, so be sure to time out the rest of your meal.

Next, wash, peel, and slice your potatoes. Chop the garlic and thyme. In a separate bowl, melt the butter and add in the cream and garlic. Then, shred the cheese.

Use a dish that’s about 2 L. I used a an oval one that’s about 1L, and just put the rest of the potatoes in an 8×8 pan. The oval one is for the table, though.

Layer 1/3 of the potatoes in the dish, then top with 1/3 of the cream mixture and a bit of thyme, salt and pepper. Add 3/4 cup of cheese.

Repeat, but don’t finish the 3rd layer with the cheese – we’ll add that at the end.
