This is the most moorish way of cooking potatoes, so rich and luxuirous, it is a huge treat. This recipe is supposed to serve 4 people, but it only manages to feed 3 in our house.
- 1 pound potatoes
- 5 fluid ounces heavy cream
- 5 fluid ounces milk
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- grated nutmeg
- 1 ounce butter
- white pepper
- 2 ounces grated mature cheddar

The cheese is also a must, especially if serving with a juicy tender steak. I find the dish works best with half milk and cream. This dish can be cooked from raw in the gratin dish, the oven cooking times increase to 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes.
