Au Gratin Potatoes
3 Pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes, Peeled, sliced thin
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
1/4 Teaspoon Ground White Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 Cup Grated Gruyere Cheese
1 Cup Grated parmesan Cheese
1 Quart Heavy Cream
1). Preheat oven to 325°F.
2). Mix Heavy Cream, Gruyere, 1/2 Cup Parmesan, Salt, Pepper, Garlic, and Eggs.
3). Add potatoes to mixture, and toss to coat evenly.
4). Remove Potatoes from Cream mixture, and place into Casserole dish . Pour cream mixture over the top of the potatoes making sure they are completely covered. Due to the shape of the dish this is not always the case, and additional cream should be added to cover the potatoes . Make sure to allow for the fact that the cream mixture will expand during the cooking process. 1" from the top of the dish should be ok.
5). Cover, and bake for 35- 40 minutes. The cream should be reduced. When the cream is reduced remove the cover, and top with grated parmesan cheese. Bake another 20 minutes, or until brown on top.
6). Remove from oven, and allow to cool a few minutes prior to serving.
