This is something one should not make when one is in a diet.But then if you are like me, i would not be able to make them anytime as i always think I am in one or another diet expirement :-(((
Oh I do miss the days when one could eat anything one wanted and never gained a single gram.
Now a days I tell to my MIL I just have to pass by any kind of food, it automatically jumps into my body and stay there !!!!!!!!!!!! but then she replies well I am sure the food is not Jumping but your hand is grabbing them. Which I totally agree.
I think every few months she too comes up with different kind of diet or she buys a different diet book and try them.
And then she tell us what is good about this diet planning and then the whole family goes to this diet plan for few weeks and we give up till she brings up another one.
You woudn't believe in the last 17 years I have known her how many different diet we all have tried with her.
The first one I tried with her was years back Weight Watchers.She and I used to go tegether for that.
Then there was this Montiniac .... then the most famous diet cabbage soup diet.... then once we all did this diet with all kinds of different seeds, we were all feeling like birds eating these seeds....I can go on and on there will be no end to the different diets.
I have to say that I have a great MIL. She is always there for me. For good times and bad times.
So as I was saying the begning of the post before I started babling, this is certainly not a dish for dieters, but then who bothers, once in a while one should indulge.
Well that is my excuse always but then once in a while is more often than I dare to admit my indulging in all the different food I Love.
800 gm potatoes, slices very thin.
50 gm butter
2 garlic cloves. ( Normally they rup the pan with garlic, but i love the taste of garlic in this dish and I mix the finley chopped garlic with the cream)
500 ml Cream.
a small pinch of nutmeg optional.
Salt and peper to taste.
50 gm grated cheese.
Preheat the oven 170°C.
Wash the sliced potatoes and dry them in a towel. . Spribkle them with salt, peper and nutmeg.
Butter a oven proofdish and aggange the potatoe slices.Pour the cream mixed with garlic.
The cream should cover all the potato slices. Add knobs of butter on top. Bake them in the oven for 40 tà 60 minutes.15 minutes before the cooking time is finished sprinkle with the grated cheese on top. So that the cheese gets brown.
I seved them with Lamb Chops. Will post that recipe another time.
When the dish comes out from the oven it is really hot, so leave it for 10 minutes before serving them. You don't want to burn you mouth do you.I am sending this to Sia of Monsoon Spice for her event and to Culninary Bazaar for her event too.
