These Gruyere Scalloped Potatoes have garlic, salt, thickened cream, pepper, nutmeg and Gruyere cheese. They are baked in the oven until bubbly and golden.
You might want to put some foil on the lower shelf in the oven in case it spills over.
Overall, it was a good dish and the flavour of the nutmeg is lovely. I had to alter the amount of the cream because the amount specified was not really enough to cover the amount of potato specified. But if you make sure you have extra cream than given in the recipe, it will turn out quite well. - 20 Jan 2017
The following is my review for this outstanding recipe that I reviewed when it was still a personal recipe. Reviewed on Nov. 22, 2011 by Avon Thanks Celeste for the perfect, perfect au gratin potato recipe. Such a simple and yet elegant taste. Easy to put together and whatever you do, don't skimp on the ingredients. Use fresh ground nutmeg, the heavy cream, the yukon golds, and most of all the gruyere. It's not everynight of the week anyone needs to splurge on something so decadent, but for a special occasion or to make a meal memorable, just do i t. You won't be sorry. - 02 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Potato perfection. I chose to slice my potatoes a little thicker, perhaps between 1/8 and 1/4 inch, and only boiled them a few minutes to ensure they would not be reduced to mush. I’d do so exactly the same next time. These are, indeed, rich and creamy and develop a beautiful and extra delicious golden brown crust as they bake. I loved the subtle flavor of the nutmeg (fresh does make a big difference I believe), which was an ideal choice to enhance, just slightly, the flavor of the potatoes as well as that gorgeous Gruyere cheese. Not only were these a decadent taste sensation, they were remarkably easy to assemble as well – no sauce to prepare, just layer cream and cheese! After sampling these it will be interesting to see if I ever go back to traditional au gratin potatoes prepared with cheddar again. - 09 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
