Creamy Potato delights!
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6. Rinse the potatoes under cool water to remove any excess starch.
2 Combine the milk, cream, nutmeg, thyme and garlic in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Add the potatoes, bring to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes. Remove from the heat, season and set aside.
3 Layer the potatoes into eight ramekins, trimming as needed and pressing them down to make them fit snugly. Pour the milk and cream mixture over each dish.
4 In a bowl, combine the two cheeses. Sprinkle evenly over the top of each gratin, then place the ramekins on a baking tray.
5 Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top. Check if they’re ready by inserting the tip of a sharp knife — it should slide in easily.
6 Allow to stand for about 10 minutes before serving.
