How to make Baked Creamy Potato Gratin Recipe
To begin making the Baked Creamy Potato Gratin Recipe, preheat oven to 170°C. Grease a 9 inch casserole/gratin dish and ovenproof dish with melted butter.
In a cast iron skillet or any other roasting pan you have. Add a tablespoon of oil to grease the pan. Add the sliced onions and saute them on low heat until soft and tender.
Combine the rosemary, cream and milk in a saucepan over low heat. Cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally until it gets its first boil.
Arrange half potatoes and carrots over the base of the prepared dish. Sprinkle some roasted onions and season with salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over half the cream mixture. Continue layering with the remaining potato slices, onion, seasoning and cream mixture.
Cover with foil and place on a baking tray in the oven. Bake in oven for one hour or until potato is tender. Finally sprinkle the baked potatoes with parmesan cheese. Remove the foil and bake, uncovered 10-15 minutes until gorgeous and crispy on top.
Allow the baked potatoes to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve the delicious Baked Creamy Potato Gratin, along with some wine, soup and a warm garlic bread this thanksgiving, christmas or the holiday season.
