2½ lb potatoes
1½ cups cream, full fat
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 tsp thyme leaves, fresh
2½ cups shredded Gruyère or mozzarella cheese


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

Step 2

Place butter, cream and garlic in a lidded container. Mix until combined.

Step 3

Combine the salt, pepper and thyme in a separate bowl.

Step 4

Peel and slice the potatoes to a 3mm (⅛”) thickness.

Step 5

Spread one third of the potatoes in a baking dish, then pour a third of the cream mixture over the potatoes, and a third of the spice mixture. Sprinkle with ¾ cup of cheese.

Step 6

Repeat step 5 for the second and third layer, but DO NOT put the cheese on the final layer.

Step 7

Cover with foil, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft (test with a knife or fork).

Step 8

Remove foil, top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for a further 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
