FFwD: Potato Gratin

Please forgive the photo... it is really hard to photograph potato gratin! But this creamy, cheesey, delicious potato goodness should not be ignored because it lacks beauty. Oh no... this dish is amazing!

It starts with thinly sliced potatoes (thank you mandoline!). The potatoes are layered in a dish and covered with heavy cream that has been infused with garlic. Then it is all topped off with grated cheese. (Dorie suggests Gruyere... I used Swiss.)

I cut the recipe down and baked the gratin in four mini ramekins. This was the perfect side dish! I ended up serving this with the roast chicken that will be posted for FFwD later this month.

Make sure to go buy Around My French Table. This recipe, along with a ton of other delicious ones, will be there!
