Potato Gratin with Gruyere and Garlic

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 1-1¼ hours
Serves: 6


  • 10 (2kg) large potatoes, peeled and sliced 1-1.5cm thick
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • 100g gruyere or cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • 1-1½ cups cream
  • 2 tsp salt (more if using flaky salt)
  • ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease the base and sides of a shallow 30 x 25cm baking dish. Place the sliced potatoes, garlic, cheese, cream, salt and pepper in the baking dish.
