Cheesy Potato Pie

  • serves 0

A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don't like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour; you have to add your own!

Directions for: Cheesy Potato Pie


7-8 Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed

2 cup 35% whipping cream

1 tsp ground nutmeg

Sprinkled sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

12 oz grated gruyere cheese, or medium cheddar


1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Place a 12” cast iron skillet or other large deep heavy sauté pan in the oven to preheat. Lightly oil a towel or folded paper towel with vegetable oil and evenly rub the hot pan, lightly coating it with oil just before using. You may also use a standard baking pan lined with parchment paper.

2. Meanwhile grate the potatoes into a large saucepan, large enough to hold them and the cream. Add the cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and bring the mixture to a simmer. This preheating step dramatically speeds up the oven time and evenly heats the potatoes. Stir in the cheese and then pour into the preheated pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until the pie has a deep golden brown crust. Loosen edges with a paring knife and Invert onto a serving platter while still warm. Cut into slices and serve with a flourish!
