Potatoes au Gratin

  • Ingredients:
  • butter to grease a casserole dish
  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
  • 3 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 5 ounces Crystal Brook Farm goat cheese, crumbled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups heavy cream, half and half, or whole milk.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

 

Grease the bottom and sides of an oven safe casserole dish.

 

Make a layer of overlapping potato slices on the bottom of the dish and sprinkle with half of the garlic and 1/3 of the goat cheese. Season with generously with salt and pepper. Repeat with another layer of potatoes, the remaining garlic, another 1/3 of the cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Finish with a final layer of potatoes and the remaining cheese and season with salt and pepper. Pour the milk over the top of the potatoes and gently press to make sure the potatoes are covered with liquid.

 

Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the gratin is bubbling and golden brown on top and the potatoes are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  • Fall is here!

    The crisp morning air reminds us that we are in a place of movement. The change of seasons invigorates and moving into fall is one of the most invigorating. Colors of leaves take over the landscape, the blue sky is so blue, and even grasses take on a deep hue.

    The goats' milk has a depth to it, also, as they continue to graze the hayfield. We're about half way down the field. The depth is particularly noticed in the sweeter cheeses, such as Cranberry Orange and Australian Ginger. Enjoy these cheeses with apples, pears, winter squash and stuffed peppers.

    Farmers Markets remain in full swing. Fall crops are abundant. Start stocking up for the winter months. We continue to off our volume discount for cheese sales.
