We had two of our favorite people over this weekend and decided to make a lovely dinner together. While the boys went to the driving range, the girls started dinner. These au gratin potatoes are a little different than what your mom used to make! YUM! (here is the recipe on all recipes) Ingredients
* 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened (we omitted) * 1 1/2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices * 1/2 cup grated Gruyere * 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan * 1 cup heavy cream * 1 teaspoon salt * 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper * 1/8 teaspoon paprika
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 1 1/2 quart baking dish with about 1 tablespoon of the softened butter. (Didn't do this)
*We first boiled the potato slices for 10 minutes to shorten the baking time
Arrange a layer of potatoes in the baking dish, and sprinkle some of the cheeses over them. Continue layering potatoes and cheeses until you've used them all, ending with a layer of potatoes.
In a small bowl, whisk the cream with the salt and pepper; pour this over the potatoes. Dot the remaining butter over the top and sprinkle with the paprika. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown on top. (*Ours only took about 35 minutes since we started with the boiled potatoes) Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
