Pork and Potatoes - the beginning

Well, no snow or rain so far - but just got back from the dog park and baby it's cold outside. Definitely planning on that Roast Pork tonight for dinner. 

Have to run to the grocery store to buy some leeks and gruyere. I already have the potatoes. This is a classic french potato casserole. 

Gruyere Cheese
Heavy Cream.

Butter a small casserole (or big - I just need 3 to 4 servings so I'm using a stoneware casserole the size of a loaf pan)
Slice potatoes (no need to peel, just scrub) thinly
Layer potatoes, sliced leeks (a small handful)
Salt and pepper
Repeat until you have about 4 layers.
top with 1/4 cup heavy cream - just pour it over. Grate some fresh nutmeg on top. 
cover with foil.
Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes.
Uncover and bake for 10 more minutes. 
This is going to accompany a roast rack of pork (4 ribs) - I'm going to rub it with some whole grain dijon mustard and press some panko crumbs into it. 

The dijon pairs perfectly with the gruyere in the potatoes. 
I'll use the rest of the lemon vinagrette from last night to season some steamed sugar snap peas. 

More later...
