How to Make PARMESAN POTATOES AU GRATIN

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cream and garlic; bring just to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes (DO NOT BOIL). Remove from heat; let stand.
  2. Generously butter a 3- to 3-1/2-quart au gratin or baking dish. Layer one-third of potato slices in dish. In a small bowl combine grated cheese, thyme, salt, nutmeg, and pepper. Sprinkle one third of cheese mixture over potato layer. Repeat layers twice. Pour garlic/cream mixture over all. Cover with foil.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until potatoes are almost tender. Uncover; bake 20 to 30 minutes more, or until liquid is absorbed and potatoes are browned. If dish is broiler safe, broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until top is crisp and brown. Let stand 10 minutes. Add desired toppings.
