This excellent recipe for Taters au Gratin was handed in my experience by oh my gosh friend Kelly Santoro, also it’s almost like the recipe I learned in culinary school. It calls for layering thinly sliced taters with heavy cream (a variety of it!) and grated cheese inside a gratin dish, after which baking before the cream reduces and blankets the taters inside a wealthy, creamy sauce. I’d the dish deserves a special event &- it's &- however that eating it's a special day by itself. Simply do your favor and don’t consider the dietary data: one bite and you may hug the diet plan goodbye :)
Start by slicing the taters as thinly and uniform as you possibly can. Use a mandoline slicer for those who have one, however i never bother.
Next, whisk together the heavy cream, pepper and salt.
Butter a couple-quart baking dish (I personally use that one from Le Creuset).
Arrange a few of the potato slices, edges overlapping, in one layer at the base from the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 from the cheese within the taters.
Pour 1/4 from the cream mixture over top.
Repeat using the remaining taters, cheese and cream, developing 4 layers. Pour any leftover cream over top.
Devote the oven and bake, uncovered, for 60-70 minutes, or before the taters are tender when pierced having a knife and golden brown on the top.
- Butter to grease the baking dish
- 2-1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 3 large Russet or Yukon Gold taters (a couple of-1/4 pounds), peeled and sliced very thin
- 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch (or 2-quart) baking dish with butter.
- Inside a mixing bowl having a flowing spout (or large liquid calculating cup), whisk together the cream, pepper and salt.
- Arrange a few of the potato slices, edges overlapping, in one layer at the base from the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 from the cheese within the taters and pour 1/4 from the cream mixture over top. Repeat using the remaining taters, cheese and cream, developing 4 layers. Pour any leftover cream over top.
- Devote the oven and bake, uncovered, for around an hour, or before the taters are tender when pierced having a knife and golden brown on the top. Allow the dish settle and awesome for around 10 mins before serving.

Among the finest to increase the accolades. This straightforward recipe is *excellent* when created using high-quality ingredients. I don’t ordinarily have good organic heavy cream and so i result in the &"regular&" Au Gratin recipe that requires creating a roux and taking advantage of milk. A week ago, I received 2 pints of cream from the raw milk provider for nearly free and made the decision to make use of 1 / 2 of it within this recipe. The cream from their store is really thick it’s the consistency of sour cream without having to be soured. I added 1/2 cup raw dairy to two glasses of this &"top cream&" also it found the consistency of store-bought heavy cream for this I added almost 3 lbs of organic russet taters, sliced thin around the mandolin. I made use of white-colored pepper rather of black. The dish arrived on the scene *wonderful*. I'll make use of the other pint of cream to create another batch of those tasty taters. Many thanks with this alternative recipe towards the normal roux-milk recipe. I'll most definitely utilize it after i have good cream on hands. I'm able to get Organic Valley whipping cream any day however i won't purchase it because it contains carrageenan. So regrettably, this recipe can be a rare treat in my household. I might have to make the best about this, therefore we might have it a minimum of a couple of occasions annually. Many thanks. )

I'd like double this recipe making the taters like a side dish for any precooked spiral pork that should be within the oven for around three hrs at 275 levels. Can you really prepare the taters at this temperature therefore, how lengthy do you consider It might take to allow them to have completed and never be mushy? I have only the main one oven and when I warm the pork at 350 levels I'm concerned that will get it dry. Thanks.

Hi Pamela, I not sure how lengthy the taters would decide to try prepare at this temperature. Rather, you might want to result in the taters ahead after which reheat them covered tightly once the pork is reheating. It’s fine to allow them to be reheated at this lower temperature.

Hi, what lengths ahead of time can one get this to? can one allow it to sit within my refrigerator for any day and pop it within the oven the following day or can one bake it and reheat the following day? I ask cause I’m so crazy your day of.

You are able to go in either case Diane. Should you don’t bake it ahead of time, pay for it tightly with plastic wrap, pressing the wrap directly from the taters so that they don’t brown. Should you bake them ahead of time, fully prepare them after which reheat, engrossed in foil, inside a 350 oven for 15-20 min.

What sort of taters would be best?
- tina veit on April 20, 2015 Reply
I've been dying to create these. I've attempted numerous types of scalloped taters, some with flour, different cheeses, some with onions, and a few without and thus forth…I would be a little skeptical with the cream and thought they'd be too wealthy and merely heavy…but, regrettably for that waistline, they're scrumptious! The taters take in the cream and the simplicity the recipe means they are scrumptious, this is my visit for special day pork dinner, that is things i made. I additionally made the curried carrots to choose it, they're amazing!
I didn't remember to include the pepper and salt towards the cream, and so i type of just sprinkled some on every layer, which labored out fine and that i used about six taters. I'd a bigger crowd, and so i elevated the recipe not to quite double, which did boost the baking time, they required about 1 hr 40 mins and that i allow them to take 10min because the recipe mentioned.
Many thanks Jenn, another champion!
