Preheat the oven.

Peel the potatoes and boil them until almost soft, then drain and slice.

Melt the butter in a small frying pan and sauté the onion until soft. Add the garlic and sauté for a minute or so.

Beat the eggs, cream and half the Parmesan together. Add the herbs and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Spoon the potatoes into a greased baking dish and top with the onion.

Pour the egg and cream mixture over, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake for about an hour until golden.

TIP:

For an interesting variation, cook turnips, carrots or parsnips with the potatoes, but make sure the quantity remains 700g.
