Skillet Potatoes au Gratin

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 12 sprigs thyme, divided
  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, sliced to 1/8-inch thickness
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan

Preparation Instructions

  1. Prepare to bake—Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Start the sauce—In a large, oven-safe ceramic non-stick skillet add the cream, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and about 6 sprigs of thyme. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and remove thyme sprigs.
  3. Prep the potatoesPlace potatoes in a large bowl and pour the cream mixture over potatoes. Stir gently to coat evenly.
  4. Sauté the aromatics—Wipe out ceramic non-stick skillet and add 1 tablespoon butter over medium high heat. Add garlic and shallots and sauté for about 1 minute. Remove ceramic non-stick skillet from heat.
  5. Prep the gratin—Add about ½ cup of cream mixture to ceramic non-stick skillet, then layer potatoes evenly in pan. Pour remaining cream over potatoes and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Garnish with remaining thyme sprigs.
  6. Bake the gratin—Cover ceramic non-stick skillet loosely with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove ceramic non-stick skillet from oven and uncover. Adjust oven to broil and cook gratin until cheese is crispy and bubbling, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve warm.

Tips

The Slice is Right - Whether you’re cutting potatoes thick or ultra thin, a mandolin makes it easy to create uniform slices that cook evenly.
