Potato gratin

Hey all! Potato gratin or gratin dauphinois is a very tasty French potato dish which is actually very easy to make. I have liked this dish since I am a little child and remember my mom making it often. Have a wonderful day…!!


- 8 medium potatoes
- 1 cup milk
- 1 ½ cups half & half
- 1 garlic clove, cut in half
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper to taste
- 1/4 Tsp. Nutmeg
- 1½ cups grated cheese ( Parmesan or Gruyere)


Preheat oven to 375 F.
Peel the potatoes and cut into fine slices. Transfer to a large bowl. In a medium saucepan heat milk, half&half, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Bring to a boil. Pour over potatoes and mix well.
Rub a baking dish with the garlic clove and pour the mixture in. Distribute evenly. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake for about 1 hour or until soft and slightly browned. Liquid should be almost absorbed in the end.
