Au Gratin Mashed Potatoes
There’s, usually, no better companion for mashed potatoes than gravy, but with these au gratin-inspired potatoes, with their creamy decadence and crispy cheese topping, they're more than enough by themselves.
You can slice the potatoes with a knife, but for even cooking, do so as thinly and uniformly as possible.
Thinly slice potatoes on a mandoline and place in a pot with milk, cream, and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently to prevent scorching, until potatoes are tender and nearly all liquid evaporates, about 30 minutes. Crush potatoes with a masher to desired consistency.
Preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from element. Transfer mashed potatoes to a broiler-safe, 1½-qt. bowl or dish.
Combine Parmesan, chives, and pepper; sprinkle over potatoes. Broil potatoes until Parmesan melts and browns, about 5 minutes.
