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.

  • August excitement!

    August is an exciting month. Summer vacations, back to school organizing, completing summer projects, planning for winter vacations. Lots of activity this month. Our farmstead goat cheese is full of excitement as well! Slice the black pepper chevre on your grilled meats and veggies. Chunk any of the logs on a fresh summer salad. Our ginger goat cheese is delicious on a salad with peaches or watermelon. Find a new favorite -- or stay with a well known variety. Goat cheese adds protein and needed minerals to your summer meals. Our goat cheese loves to go on vacation. Pick up some logs and a easy to use tub for a trip to the beach or camping. Farmers Markets are in full swing. See more about our market schedule under The Store:Farmers Markets. Visit us at the markets.

    The cheese is developing some new flavors as the grasses grow and the goats are grazing on different flora. Warm season grasses bring a sweeter flavor than the fresh grass of spring. Our 2 year old buck Moses is looking sleek and shiny, prepping for his task in a month.

    Our ON-FARM Store is OPEN - Wednesday through Sunday, 7 am - 7 pm. Come get the spring cheese - creamy, fresh and sweet - KIds are getting bigger and very active. They will get some additional pasture area this week.

    Self guided tours are free and open during daylight hours, Wed. - Sun. Guided tours are available by appointment only. See Dooryard/Tours section.
