Jamie Deen’s Three-Cheese Potato Gratin

Butter for coating dish
2 pounds red potatoes, sliced 1/8 inch thick
3 ounces Gruyere cheese, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
3 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs
2 cups half-and-half


Preheat oven to 400¡F. Butter a 11Ú2-quart gratin dish or shallow baking dish; set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes; cook for 4 minutes (they will not be tender); drain. In a small bowl, stir together the cheeses.

Arrange one-third of the potatoes in the bottom of the prepared dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and one-third of the cheese mixture. Repeat with a second layer of potatoes, salt, pepper, and half the remaining cheese mixture. Arrange the remaining potatoes on top.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs. In a small saucepan (preferably one with a lip for pouring), heat half-and-half until steaming. Whisking constantly, slowly pour the half-and-half into the eggs. (If the eggs curdle slightly, just strain the mixture.) Season the egg mixture with salt and pepper; pour evenly over potatoes. Sprinkle potatoes with the remaining cheese mixture. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and
the top is golden. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

    I don’t cook much anymore, but these I’d be tempted to make. However, tempted DOES NOT mean I’m doing it…… I’m pretty good at resisting some temptations!! LOL 😀
