In small saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potato until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and let cool for 5 minutes. Thinly slice and overlap in greased 3-cup (750 mL) shallow gratin dish.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat butter over medium heat; cook onion and garlic until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in flour; cook for 1 minute. Whisking constantly, add milk, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time. Whisk in cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Reduce heat to low; simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in Gruy? and Parmesan cheeses.

Pour 1/2 cup (125 mL) sauce over potato. Top with Swiss chard, pressing to compact. Pour remaining sauce over top. Bake in 400°F (200°C) for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and browned.
