  • Summary

    There’s no need to reduce your cream or pre-cook the kale for this aromatic casserole; everything cooks together in cheesy, creamy harmony. Leaving the potatoes unpeeled bumps up nutrients and cuts the prep time, too.

    Ingredients

    • 4 slices seeded rye bread
    • 1 large bunch kale (preferably Tuscan; about 12 ounces), ribs removed, leaves torn into 3" pieces
    • 6 ounces good-quality Gruyère, grated on the large holes of a food processor blade or box grater (about 2 cups)
    • 2 ounces good-quality Parmesan, grated on the large holes of a food processor blade or box grater (about 1/2 cup)
    • 2 pounds yellow-fleshed potatoes (such as Yukon Gold), unpeeled, cut crosswise into 1/8"-thick slices (see Cooks' Note), divided
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, divided
    • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
    • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated or pressed
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • A 13x9x2" or 3-quart baking dish
