  • Preparation time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 50-60 minutes
  • Difficulty Level: **
  • Serve: 2


  • 800g potatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 55g grated Gruyere cheese
  • a bit of nutmeg
  • 300ml double (thick/heavy) cream
  • 100ml milk

How to Cook

Preheat the oven to 170degC (no fan). Thinly slice the potatoes with a sharp knife. Butter a 16cm x 16cm ovenproof dish and layer the potatoes, sprinkling the garlic, cheese, nutmeg and seasoning between the layers and leaving a bit of cheese for the top.

Pour the cream and milk over the top and sprinkle with the cheese.

Bake for 55 minutes, or until the potatoes are completely cooked and the liquid absorbed. If the top browns too much, cover loosely with foil. Leave to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
