Potato GratinPrint Recipe
- 2-4 large russet potatoes
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1 and 1/4 c cheddar cheese, shredded and split
- salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
- cooking spray
Spray casserole dish with cooking spray and scrub the potatoes clean, peel them, and then cut them in 1/4" slices.
Add the sliced potatoes to pot with heavy cream along with a good pinch of salt and black pepper.
Bring the cream up to a simmer over medium heat and just when it has tiny bubbles around the edges turn the heat down and simmer the potatoes for about 15 minutes.
When the potatoes are done, using a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes and place into your casserole dish (trying not to take too much cream with you).
Smooth the potatoes out into a layer and salt and pepper that layer to taste; then add in a second layer of the potatoes and repeat with salt and pepper.
Add in the 3/4 cup of shredded cheese to pot with heavy cream and bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring the whole time.
Boil for about 5-7 minutes stirring constantly, then pour over the potatoes and add the rest of the shredded cheese on top.
Cover the dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes; uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
