Potatoes By Request

Especially for Kate here is the scalloped potato recipe and you are right we do try to make it as fat free as possible without losing any flavour.

Scalloped Potatoes
Potatoes
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/4 of a cup of cream/light cream
1 cup of grated cheese
Nutmeg
Salt & white pepper

Very finely slice your potatoes, enough for whatever oven dish you are cooking them in. By finely sliced I mean about 3-4mm.
Heat your milk and cream in a pan to a simmer
Put a layer of potatoes in the dish and sprinkle on a third of the cheese and lightly season with salt and pepper and a little nutmeg.
Repeat and once the dish is full pour over hot milk/cream mixture and then the remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 190C. Remove foil after 40 mins and turn down to 170C. Continue cooking until golden brown and all liquid has been absorbed. Stand for 10 mins before serving.
