This Sunday our Sunday Supper group is sharing Passover and Easter recipes. When I think of Easter in my home growing up we always had ham and scallop potatoes. In fact, my sister has kept the tradition going for many years, when the celebration is held in her home.
I find myself experimenting with dishes and changing things up sometimes. This potato dish is different then the one I grew up with because the cheese is a different style and flavor and this changes the dish slightly. I like the use of gruyere cheese personally. The flavor is one that is unique and allows this dish to shine.
I found this recipe a while back on a page called the French Tart. I will share my adapted version below. I even went and bought a fancy Le Crueset baking dish to prepare my gratin dish so that it would have the right presentation for my family. I love these oval baking dishes.
I invite you to visit my friends from Sunday Supper (recipes below). They are a great group of men and women and I am always impressed with their dishes and stories.
Recipe: French Gratin Potatoes or Dauphinoise
Prep and Cook Time: 2 hours
3 lbs. of waxy potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
3 cups Gruyere Cheese, grated
2 cups of heavy cream
3 cloves of minced garlic
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 3oo degrees.
Butter the inside of a heavy duty baking dish.
Add a layer of potatoes and a sprinkle of salt/pepper to the bottom of the dish, cover with cheese. Repeat this until all of the potatoes and cheese are gone. Your last layer should be cheese.
In a small saucepan, add heavy cream, garlic and thyme.
Bring to a gentle boil, remove from heat and remove thyme.
Pour hot cream over potatoes.
Bake for 1.5 hours or until potatoes are done and the top is browned.
