Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Butter 2-qt. flameproof casserole dish. Peel the potatoes and cover in cold water until ready to use. Combine the garlic, cream, salt, and pepper in small bowl. Dry potatoes fully and slice, using a mandoline if possible, 1/8-in thick. Place potatoes in gratin dish layering in a circular fashion. Lightly season each layer with nutmeg. Pour the seasoned cream over the potatoes and shake the dish gently to allow the cream to flow towards the bottom of the dish.

Place the pan on the stovetop over low heat and begin to warm contents until the cream has begun to simmer. Cook the potatoes in the seasoned cream for five minutes. Place dish in oven. Bake potatoes for 45-60 min. until the top has browned to a rich golden color and the cream is bubbling along the side of the dish. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 min before serving.
