Individual potato gratins

Individual potato gratins
Makes 8
1kg floury potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
600ml Avonmore Fresh Milk
600ml Avonmore Double Cream
1pinch freshly ground nutmeg
2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
4 garlic cloves, crushed
Salt and black pepper
150g Avonmore Freshly Grated Red Cheddar
50g Parmesan, grated
  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.
