Ingredients

  • 2 potatoes (about 10 oz/300 g), peeled and quartered
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 2/3 cups shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 5 cups shredded Swiss chard leaves
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and let cool for 5 minutes; thinly slice. Overlap in greased 6-cup (1.5 L) gratin dish.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat butter over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.

Stir in flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time. Whisk in cayenne, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Reduce heat to low; simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in Gruyère cheese.

Pour about half of the sauce over potatoes. Top with Swiss chard, pressing to compact. Pour remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until bubbly and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
