1 pound large red potatoes

3/4 cup coarsely grated Gruyere (about 3 ounces)

1 large egg

3/4 cup milk, heated just to boiling

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 1-quart gratin or shallow baking dish.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Peel potatoes and cut into thin slices (about 1/8-inch thick). Add potatoes to boiling water and parcook 4 minutes. Drain potatoes well in a colander.
  3. In gratin or baking dish, arrange potatoes, overlapping them, in 3 layers, sprinkling first 2 layers each with 1/4 cup Gruyere and salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. In a small bowl whisk egg and add hot milk in a stream, stirring constantly. Season mixture with salt and pepper and pour evenly over potatoes. Sprinkle the potatoes with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake until top is golden and potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.
