Recipe Title: Potatoes Dauphinoise

Contributed by: Katg

Note from the Diva
This is kind of like Scalloped Potatoes, but a lot drier and can be sliced. I haven’t had this for years and we had it up in Prince Edward Island last summer and it brought back memories. Not good on calories…but great comfort food! Can be made in advance and then sliced and heated up.

List of Ingredients
¾ pint of whipping cream or half and half
3 cloves of garlic - minced
Salt and pepper
6 medium sized baking potatoes ( I used Florida white potatoes and it was good)
2 tablespoons of butter
½ cup of grated cheddar or Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of butter
Nutmeg – about ¾ of a teaspoon

Preparation
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Bring the cream to a simmer and add your minced garlic. Add plenty of salt to taste – even more than you would normally use as the potatoes will absorb it. When you start getting little bubbles on the side of the saucepan, remove from the heat and set aside.

Peel your Potatoes and cut them into about 1/8th inch slices. I used my food processor and it made it go real fast. However, if you are cutting by hand, put your slices into cold water to prevent the starch from turning them dark. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with some salt, pepper and the nutmeg.

Grease the pan (I used a loaf pan) with the butter. Layer the potato slices flat. Add the cream to the loaf pan and let it absorb into the potatoes – they should be barely covered and not swimming in cream.

You should have about an inch of headroom in your pan. Cover with aluminum foil and press it all down inside the pan to keep the potatoes from floating. (You can use another pan to weigh this down, but it’s not that necessary)

Bake for 40 minutes – remove the foil and bake for another 20. Turn on the broiler to 500 and add the grated cheese on top – Broil for an additional 10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let it rest for another 15 minutes before cutting. If you make it in advance – just refrigerate it, cut it into serving pieces and place on a buttered baking pan in a 450 degree oven until browned and heated.

Enjoy!
