    Gruyere Potato Gratin

    Adapted from Gourmet Magazine

    2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
    1 1/2 cups coarsely grated Gruyere cheese (about 6 ounces)
    1 cup milk, heated just to boiling
    1 cup heavy cream, heated just to boiling
    Freshly grated nutmeg
    Salt and pepper, to taste

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees and butter a 3-quart gratin or shallow baking dish. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a
    boil. Peel potatoes and cut into thin slices (about 1/8-inch thick). Add potatoes to boiling water and parcook 4 minutes. Drain
    potatoes well in a colander.

    In gratin or baking dish arrange potatoes, overlapping them, in 3 layers, sprinkling first 2 layers each with 1/2 cup Gruyere
    and salt and peppers to taste.

    Heat milk, cream and nutmeg in a small bowl. Season mixture with salt and pepper and pour evenly over potatoes. Sprinkle
    potatoes with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake 30 minutes, or until top is golden and potatoes are tender.

    Yield: 4 servings
