Potato Savoyarde Print Email

1 TBS butter, melted,
plus 3 TBS cut into small pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups Gruyere cheese, grated
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 1/2 pounds potatoes,
scrubbed and cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 1/2 cups stock

Preheat oven to 375¡. Brush a 2-qt baking dish with melted butter. In a small bowl combine garlic, parsley, cheese and pepper. Layer 1/3 of the potatoes in the prepared dish and sprinkle 1/3 of the garlic cheese mixture over the top. Cover with 1 TBS of the butter pieces. Repeat the layers once and finish with the remaining potatoes. Pour the stock and then the remaining garlic/cheese mixture over the layers. Dot with the butter. Cover the dish with buttered aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the potatoes are tender and the top is brown and crusty, 30-40 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
