  • 1/4  cup 
    unsalted butter
  • 4   
    medium leeks, thin sliced
  • 4   
    medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 2   tablespoons 
    fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 2   teaspoons 
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    ground black pepper
  • 5   pounds 
    (about 10 medium) russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 2 1/4  cups 
    chicken broth
  • 2 1/4  cups 
    heavy cream
  • 8   ounces 
    Gruyere cheese, shredded (2 cups)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Melt butter in large Dutch oven over medium heat. When the foaming subsides, add leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 4 minutes.
Add garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook for about 30 seconds.
Add potatoes, broth and cream; heat to simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the potatoes are almost tender (a paring knife can be slipped into and out of a potato slice with some resistance), about 15 to 20 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake until cream is bubbling around the edges and top is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Cool slightly before serving.
