2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, sliced and divided
1 6-oz. pkg. Gruyère cheese, coarsely shredded and divided
salt and pepper
1 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream

Cook potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water for 4 minutes; drain. Arrange one-third of the potatoes in a greased 3-quart casserole dish; sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Repeat layers once; top with remaining potato slices. Set aside. Combine milk and cream in a heavy saucepan; heat just to boiling. Whisk in nutmeg; pour over potatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
