Potato Gratin

Serves 4-6

1kg potatoes, peeled
400ml single cream
150g freshly grated parmesan
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Knob of butter
Freshly grated nutmeg

Pre-heat the oven to 180C / 350F / gas 4

Grease the inside of an oven-proof dish with butter.

Thinly slice the potatoes and put a layer on the base of the dish.  Season with salt and pepper, pour a little of the cream over and sprinkle with parmesan.

Repeat until you have used up the potatoes, parmesan and cream.  Grate a little nutmeg over the top and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 35 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the top golden.

Great with lamb chops and green vegetables.
