There’s one side dish that always gets rave reviews: scalloped potatoes. (Seriously, has anyone ever said no to a scoop of these rich, buttery spuds?) Whether they’re a hearty addition to a cold-weather, weeknight dinner or dressed up with cheese and fresh herbs to be served as part of an Easter meal, you can't go wrong with potatoes. This recipe calls for waxy potatoes, half-and-half and butter, which gives the scalloped potatoes the perfect texture. Garlic and nutmeg balance out the flavor.
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 1/4 pounds Yellow Finn potatoes or other waxy-style potato
2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rub the garlic around the inside of an 8 by 8 by 2-inch casserole dish and let it dry. Reserve the remaining garlic. Rub the butter around the inside of the dish. Reserve the remaining butter.
Peel and thinly slice the potatoes on a mandolin or vegetable slicer (about 1/8-inch-thick slices).
In a medium saucepan, combine the garlic, butter, potatoes, half-and-half, salt, pepper to taste, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring, until the mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. Shake the pan so the potatoes are distributed evenly.
Bake the potatoes, basting occasionally, until lightly browned and bubbly, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
