Cold weather bringing on the cravings? Don't fight 'em – feed 'em.
Winter is all about the comfort food. It's cold out, so a toasty warm food coma is all I ask for! And trust me, these scalloped potatoes will do the trick.
Gooey, warm, and delicious, just the way comfort food should be!
- 1 clove garlic, smashed
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 1/2 pound Yukon Gold potatoes
- 2 cups half and half
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Pinch nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Rub the garlic around the inside of a small dutch oven and let it dry. Reserve the remaining garlic.
Rub the butter around the inside of the dish. Reserve the remaining butter.
Thinly slice the potatoes, about 1/8" thick slices.
Combine the garlic, butter, potatoes, half-and-half, salt, pepper to taste, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring, until the mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes.
Shake the pan so the potatoes are distributed evenly and transfer to the oven.
Bake the potatoes, basting occasionally, until lightly browned and bubbly, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
