Provolone and Mozzarella Potato Gratin
2 medium Russet potatoes, scrubbed and sliced very thin
kosher salt to taste
2 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup half and half
Spray a small baking dish. Place a layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle a bit of salt. Tear up one slice of provolone cheese and put it on top of the potato layer. Add another layer of sliced potatoes; sprinkle a bit of salt. Put 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese on top of the potato layer. Repeat with another layer of potato sprinkled with salt and the provolone. Use the remaining potatoes for the top layer, salt, and add the remaining shredded mozzarella cheese. Pour the half and half over the layers. Bake covered at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the cover and bake for about 15 minutes until the cheese is golden on top. When done, remove from oven and let sit for about five minutes before serving. Made just enough for the two of us.
