Potato Gratin Recipe

A french classic, this creamy potato dish is a perfect starter or side. Team it with a hot dish for dinner or use for a BBQ. Either way I am sure that the family will enjoy this tasty dish. What I like about this recipe the most is it’s easy to prepare. Once prepared pop it in the oven and you can do plenty of other things while it’s cooking. By the time everything else is ready, you just take it out of the oven and voila!
