  • 1 T salted butter
  • 2 1/2 lbs Idaho Russet Potatoes
  • 2 1/2 c light cream
  • 1 1/2 c fat free half and half
  • 1 garlic clove - finely minced
  • 1 T fresh rosemary leaves - finely chopped
  • 1 t coarse salt
  • 1/4 t ground black pepper
  • 5 oz Gruyere cheese - finely grated
  • 3 oz gorgonzola cheese - finely crumbled
  • 1/8 t freshly grated nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in middle position. Spread butter across bottom and sides of a 2-quart baking dish or tart pan.
  • Peel potatoes and slice very thinly using a mandoline - use the thinnest setting on your mandoline.  Place slices in a large bowl of ice water. 
  • Drain slices thoroughly between layers of paper towels.
  • Bring cream, half and half, rosemary and garlic to a simmer in a large, deep saucepan. Add potatoes, salt, and pepper and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender -  about 20 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer 1/3 of the potatoes to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat process for another 1/3 of the potatoes.  Add remaining potatoes to baking dish and pour just enough cream and garlic mixture over potatoes to barely cover. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.  
  • Place on a foil-lined baking sheet.  I like to use a rimmed baking sheet.  Bake until golden brown on top, and potatoes are very tender.
  • Remove from oven and grate nutmeg over top just before serving.


The best way to reheat this is a non-stick skillet.
