Individual Potato Gratins

vegetable spray
1-2 large russet potatoes, thinly sliced (P's note: or Yukon gold potatoes)
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves, minced garlic
1 tsp fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried, and a few sprigs to decorate tops
2 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 6 cup muffin tin with vegetable spray. If desired, place a small sprig of thyme at bottom of muffin tin.

In a medium saute pan add olive oil and finely chopped onion, cook for 5 - 10 minutes until softened, add minced garlic and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes. Add thyme and remove from heat.

Put three very thinly sliced potato slices in each muffin tin, salt and pepper. Put a heaping 1/2 tsp of onion mixture on top of potatoes and 1 tbsp grated cheese. Repeat layers two more times or until full, ending with potatoes on top. Pour 1 to 1-1/2 tbsp heavy cream over tops of potatoes. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, uncover and continue to bake for 15-20 minutes longer, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with tip of a knife. Let rest 3 - 5 minutes and run a knife around the edges. Invert gratins onto a plate and serve.

Serves 6

Patís note: These are delicious.
Made again using roquefort instead of gruyere and they were realllly good. Went well with Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Herb and Mustard Crust
