  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lubricate the baking dish with a thin layer of butter. Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick slices. Leave them in the water so that they do not turn brown.
  2. In the meantime, preheat a thick-bottomed frying pan. Melt butter in it. Add garlic and cook it for about a minute until the melted butter becomes fragrant.
  3. Add cold cream, milk, nutmeg, salt and chopped parsley. Fry everything for a minute, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and let the mass simmer for 10 minutes. Now remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Fill the baking dish with 1/3 of the potatoes. Add the creamy mass. Repeat the same with the leftovers of the ingredients. Add a layer of cheese on top of this casserole.
