Onion Potato Gratin

The other day I made the most divine Onion Potato Gratin. I am not sure if I ever made one but while looking for potato recipes I came across one. Of course, I didn't follow the exact recipe. What else is new? But at least the recipe allowed me to know what I was doing.

I make scalloped potatoes and hash brown casserole all the time but this was different. And, it was so good, I have to make it again! I might be making this for New Year's when I make our traditional Prime Rib Roast!

I was lucky that I was able to use some of our last homegrown potatoes in the recipe. Here is the how I made it.

We grew these potatoes!!

Use Gruyere and Parmesan cheese. 

Slice an onion into thin slices. 

Peel and slice potatoes into thin slices and start layering in casserole dish.

Salt and pepper slices.

Add onions.

Add the Gruyere and Parmesan cheese.

Grate some fresh nutmeg.

Start a new layer.

Add some Herbs de Provence. 

When you finish layering the ingredients, add some half and half or
heavy cream (a
bout a 2/3 of a cup although I added it until it covered the potatoes) 
and add at least 2 tablespoons of butter. 

Bake in 400 degree oven for about 35-45 minutes. 
It will depend on how thin you sliced the potatoes. 

Look at how beautiful that is.


Buen Provecho!
