  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • butter
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for broiling


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a saucepan, heat up the cream with a sprig of thyme, chopped garlic and nutmeg.

  3. While cream is heating up, butter a casserole dish. Place a layer of potato in an overlapping pattern and season with salt and pepper. Remove cream from heat, then pour a little over the potatoes. Top with some grated Parmesan. Make 2 more layers. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle some more Parmesan and broil until cheese browns, about 5 minutes.
