  • 1 kg Potatoes
  • 500 ml Cream
  • 30 g Butter
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 70 g Cheese (you can take any cheese, in the original - Parmesan)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg is a must
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt


  • Cut the potatoes into thin (2-3 mm) slices.
  • In a saucepan, bring the cream to a boil (the cream begins to rise in the saucepan), add salt, pepper to taste, add the potatoes, stir, bring to a boil and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add a clove of garlic, squeezed out or finely grated, and literally a pinch (¼ teaspoon) of nutmeg, mix thoroughly and turn off the stove.
  • Lubricate the baking dish with butter. We spread the potatoes in layers, pour the cream sauce remaining in the pan.

  • We bake in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for about 20 minutes until the cheese is browned.
