    Recipe Introduction


    Posted by: Bosox***********These are the best scalloped potatoes I have ever had. It is a Jacques Pepin recipe and I think they are so good because you cook the potatoes briefly in the Milk/cream mixture. They are not as complicated as they seem and are sure worth it.

    List of Ingredients




    These are the best scalloped potatoes I have ever had. It is a Jacques Pepin recipe and I think they are so good because you cook the potatoes briefly in the Milk/cream mixture. They are not as complicated as they seem and are sure worth it.

    2 lbs boiling potatoes, peeled (about 5-6 cups)
    2 cups milk
    1 1/3 cups heavy cream
    1 large garlic clove minced
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 Tbs butter
    1/3 c grated Swiss cheese (about 2 oz)

    Recipe



    Wash potatoes well and dry them. Slice then 1/8 inch thick (or a thin as you can) into large saucepan. Add the milk, cream, garlic, salt and pepper, and bring liquid to a boil over moderate heat, stirring with a wooden spatula to prevent scorching. Remove pan from heat.

    Pour the tomato mixture into awell buttered gratin dish. (I use regular Pyrex 11 x 17. Sprinkle grated cheese over all (I sometimes use more cheese). Bake on baking sheet in preheated 400 degree oven for about 1 hour. They are done when browned and the tip of a knife pierces the potatoe easily. Let the dish stan for 15 minutes before serving.

    These are really good. My family insists on them every holiday.
