How to make it

  • Place peeled and thinly sliced potatoes into a large saucepan. I use my cheap and cheerful Swissmar Borner V-Slicer Mandolin
  • Cover with the milk, garlic and spices. Now is not the time to skimp on salt or pepper!
  • Bring to a soft boil.
  • Boil until thickened. 5 mins
  • Using a pair of spring tongs, lay sliced potatoes evenly in the bottom of a big gratin dish.
  • Pour remaining sauce over.
  • Cover with 1/2 cup cream or half 'n half
  • Preheat Oven to 375.
  • Bake for 1 hour
  • Let rest for 15 mins.
  • Serve
  • This recipe was wonderful! Especially with special celebration dinners. It is very easy to make and it tasted remarkably-fantastically rich and wonderful. I didn't change a thing!
