Notes & Variations on Potato Gratin

This one works really well with mushrooms in the sauce. Use a double quantity of creamy mushrooms instead of the cream mixture. Note: you might want to make the creamy mushroom sauce a bit thinner, by adding 100ml of double cream.

Layer the mixture as in the recipe above and cook. Delicious.
