Potato Gratin (Loaf Pan)
Brava Chef Travis
Use any cheese you like. Gruyere and fontina would be great in this recipe. This gratin is thicker than most, so you can slice it ike a meatloaf! If you have leftovers, the slices are fantastic reheated on Brava metal tray for about 5 minutes.
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 large russet potatoes, thinly sliced on mandoline
kosher salt and pepper
1-2 cups freshly grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Grease Brava loaf pan with butter.
Arrange a layer of potato slices in bottom of loaf pan, shingling the slices until bottom of pan is covered. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper. Sprinkle thin layer of cheddar and Parmigiano. Continue layering potatoes, salt, pepper and cheeses until ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of cheeses on top.
