4 tablespoons melted butter (1/2 stick)
2 pounds red skin potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Brush a 9 x 12-inch casserole dish or cast iron skillet with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter.
Layer the potatoes in the casserole dish and pour the remaining melted butter over them.
Whisk the egg, milk, nutmeg and salt and pepper together in a bowl. Pour evenly over the potatoes.
Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until the top is browned, and a knife is easily inserted into the potatoes. Serve hot.
