Potatoes au Gratin


I have been looking to try this recipe out for a long long time. It only took some leftover cream to think, ‘hang on, let’s make Gratin! ‘ (French for ‘crust’) this is possibly the simplest dish ever just don’t think about the calories it entails…

3 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 1/2 cups fresh cream
1 cup grated parmesan
1 1/2tsp salt
1/4tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an oven proof dish with butter.

Mix together the cream and seasoning. Start by laying the potatoes in the dish. Once you’ve covered the bottom add a quarter mixture of the cream and layer with cheese. Repeat this process until you have none left and pour remaining cream mixture on top.

I kept the potatoes in for a good hour to make sure they are nice and soft and have a nice light brown crust form on the top! Bon apรจtite.
