Preparation / Directions:
1. Scald the cream. Remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks. To prevent the eggs from curdling, slowly whisk the eggs while pouring a half cup of the hot cream into the mix. Do this three times to ensure the eggs haven't curdled, then pour the mix into the remaining cream.
2. Coat 9 x 13 baking dish with butter. In the dish, make a layer of potatoes, then top with a little parsley, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add the cheese, but reserve a third of the cheese for a topping. Repeat the process until you've used all the potatoes, but don't put parsley on the top layer. Pour in the cream mixture and top with remaining cheese. Cover and bake for an hour at 350ø or until potatoes are tender.
