- 3 pounds potatoes, such as russet, peeled and thinly sliced (about ¹⁄8 inch thick)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
- 2½ cups heavy cream
- 1½ cups whole milk
- 1 garlic clove, smashed
- 5 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
- ¹⁄8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- Put the peeled sliced potatoes in a bowl of cold water. Preheat the oven to 350°F with the rack in the middle position.
- Spread the butter across the bottom and up the sides of a 2-quart baking dish.
- Bring the cream, milk, and garlic to a simmer in a saucepan.
- Drain the potatoes well and lay a quarter of them in the baking dish.
- Set aside 2 ounces of the cheese. Scatter a quarter of the remaining cheese over the potatoes and top with a quarter each of the salt, white pepper, and nutmeg.
- Pour a quarter of the cream mixture over the potatoes to just cover.
- Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make a total of four layers.
- Cover with foil, set the baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until tender and bubbly, 40 to 45 minutes.
- Increase the oven temperature to 400°F.
- Uncover the pan and top with the reserved 2 ounces cheese. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and light golden brown, about 15 minutes.
- Remove the dish from the oven and let rest for at least 15 minutes before serving.
