  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, sliced into 1/8-inch rounds

Step 3 –Lightly grease 1/3 of an 18×13-inch sheet pan with the extra butter.

Step 5 –In a small bowl, mix the parmesan, 1/3 cup of the heavy cream, the remaining thyme, 1/2 of the remaining garlic, the salt, and the pepper.

Step 6 –Arrange 1/2 of the potato slices in a single, overlapping layer on the buttered part of the sheet pan and pour the heavy cream mixture over the top.

Step 7 –Top the heavy cream mixture with the remaining potato slices.

Step 8 –Cover the potato mixture with foil and bake until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15-20 minutes.

Step 9 –In a medium bowl, whisk the cream cheese, the remaining heavy cream, the remaining garlic, and the salt together until it is smooth.

Step 10 –Fold the spinach into the whisked cream cheese mixture until it is well coated.

Step 11 –Divide the spinach mixture between two 4-inch ramekins and gently press the spinach down in each dish so that it is flat and the cream mixture is pooling a bit on the top.

Step 12 –Transfer the potato mixture from the oven, remove the foil, and sprinkle with the Gruyère cheese.

Step 13 –Place the steaks in the middle of the sheet pan and generously sprinkle with the salt and the pepper.

Step 14 –Put the ramekins on one end of the empty third of the pan so that they are side-by-side.

Step 15 –Bake the steak mixture until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 95 degrees F, about 12-14 minutes.

Step 16 –Transfer the pan from the oven and turn on the broiler.

Step 17 –Carefully place the coated shrimp on the sheet pan next to the ramekins. To create two hearts, when arranging the shrimp connect the tails of 2 shrimp and repeat with the remaining shrimp.

Step 18 –Broil the steak mixture until the steaks start to brown in some spots and they reach an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F, the shrimp are opaque, and the cheese on the potatoes has turned golden and begins to crisp, about 3-4 minutes.

Step 19 –Let the steak mixture rest, about 5-10 minutes.

Step 20 –Slice the steak against the grain and plate it alongside the shrimp, the potatoes, and the creamed spinach.

Step 21 –Serve.
