1.Microwave cream, milk, butter, nutmeg, garlic and thyme in a medium microwave-safe jug on HIGH for 2 minutes or until just below boiling point. Stir well to melt butter; stand for 15 minutes. Discard garlic and thyme.
2.Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Grease a 2-litre (8-cup) shallow ovenproof dish.
3.Use a mandoline or V-slicer to slice potatoes thinly. Layer potato and cheddar in dish; pour cream mixture over the top. Cover dish with greased foil.
4.Bake gratin, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle gratin with parmesan. Bake, uncovered, for a further 20 minutes or until potato is tender and browned. Stand for 10 minutes before serving, topped with extra thyme.
Use a floury variety of potato such as spunta, desiree or russet burbank for this recipe. You could use vintage cheddar or blue cheese instead of the smoked cheddar, if you like.
