Really Simple Potato Gratin

Click on the link to my vacation blog and you'll see just how great this looks.

  • 3 lb waxy potatoes, trimmed of blemishes and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3/4 c cream
  • 2 oz really sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 oz parmesan, shredded

salt and pepper to taste

Green onions, minced, for garnish

1. Simmer the potatoes (don't use salt) until they're almost done.

2. Drain and set aside to cool.

3. Butter a baking dish and dump the potatoes into it. Using a fork, crush the potatoes slightly. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Stir the cheddar into the cream, and pour over the potatoes. Sprinkle the parmesan over the top.

5. Bake for about 25 minutes at 375, or whatever your oven is really at when you set it to 375. The top will brown, and the bottom will get all bubbly. That means you're done, exceot for scattereing the green onions over the top to make it pretty.
