Ingredients

  • double cream 300ml

  • whole milk 200ml
  • garlic 2 cloves, halved

  • nutmeg 1 whole

  • Maris Piper potatoes 1.5kg, peeled
  • butter
  • parmesan 2-3 tbsp, grated

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the cream, milk and garlic in a pan, adding a good grating of nutmeg. Leave to infuse while you prep the spuds.


  • Step 2

    Cut the little ends off each potato so it’s 
a similar size all the way along. Cut into thin slices, keeping the slices together, then lay in a very large wide, shallow buttered dish approx 24cm by 36cm in rows, pushing down a bit like fanned out cards or dominoes. Keep going until the surface is covered.

  • Step 3

    Reheat and season the cream, then discard the garlic. Pour over the potatoes and press down with the back of a fish slice. Scatter with the parmesan. Bake alongside the turkey (at 180C/fan 160C/gas 4) for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until tender 
and golden.
