Thinly sliced potatoes soak up heavy cream perfumed with garlic and fresh herbs in this luxurious side dish, which is perfect for serving alongside roast meats. The spinach adds fresh flavor and makes the dish a little lighter than your typical gratin.


  • 1 1/2 cups (12 fl. oz./375 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh sage
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 10 cups baby spinach
  • 2 lb. (1 kg) russet potatoes
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups (12 oz./375 g) grated Gruyère cheese
  • 1/4 cup (1 oz./30 g) grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter an 11-inch (28-cm) gratin dish.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil, then remove from the heat and set aside.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) water and the spinach. Sauté the spinach until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from pan, let cool slightly, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the spinach. Set the spinach aside.

Peel the potatoes. Using a mandoline or very sharp knife, cut the potatoes into slices about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick. Gently stir the potato slices into the cream mixture.

Arrange one-third of the potato slices, slightly overlapping, on the bottom of the prepared dish. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, half of the onions, half of spinach and 1 cup (4 oz./125 g) of the Gruyère. Repeat, using another one-third of the potato slices, salt and pepper, all the remaining onions, the remaining spinach and another 1 cup of the Gruyère. Top with the remaining potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper again. Using a large, flat spatula, gently press on the potatoes to compact them. Pour any cream mixture remaining in the saucepan over the potatoes and sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1 cup Gruyère and the Parmesan.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a sharp knife, about 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the gratin is golden brown and bubbly, about 20 minutes more. Let the gratin rest for 10 minutes, then use a spatula to cut it into squares and serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.
