Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 1 hr 10 min

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Level: Easy


3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cups heavy cream

Kosher salt

10 fresh sage leaves

1 pound (about 2 medium) russet potatoes

Cayenne pepper, to taste

1/2 cup grated manchego cheese (about 2 ounces)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.

Bring the cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the sage to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium-low heat; cook 10 minutes. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and slice 1/8 inch thick (use a mandoline, if you have one).

Cover the bottom of the prepared dish with about one-quarter of the potatoes, overlapping the slices. Season with salt and cayenne pepper and sprinkle with one-third of the cheese. Repeat the layers 2 more times (potatoes, salt, cayenne, cheese), ending with a layer of potatoes.

Strain the cream, discarding the sage. Pour the cream into the dish and press the potatoes down. Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons butter into pieces and dot over the potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil and transfer to the oven; reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake 40 minutes, then uncover and bake until golden and bubbly, about 20 more minutes.
