280 calories per serving 


2 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced   400 g
1 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2%, enough to cover the potatoes   250 mL
1 bay leaf   0.1 g
1 clove garlic, pressed    
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
3 tbsp whipping cream 35%, enough to cover the potatoes   45 mL
1 pinch nutmeg    
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the potatoes easier.


  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350ºF.
  2. Peel the potatoes and slice them thinly (6-7 mm), then put the slices in a nonstick pan (just large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer). Pour in the milk (add enough to cover the potatoes), then add the bay leaf and pressed garlic. Season the potatoes generously with salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, with some stirring to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the bottom of the pan and scorching. Lower the heat and cook 15-20 min with occasional stirring until the potatoes are soft but not falling apart.
  3. Arrange the potato slices with any remaining cooking milk in a baking dish and cover them with the cream. Sprinkle with the nutmeg and ground pepper. Bake in the middle of the oven about 35 min, until the potatoes are golden and crusty.
  4. Serve.
