Broccoli Gratin

This gratin is different to others I've tried. It's more like a puree but a very tasty one!

What a great side dish! I made half the recipe for the two of us and I felt the proportion of potatoes and broccoli were perfect. Instead of steaming the broccoli, I toasted them in the oven with a litte water on the bottom of the baking dish (500F for 5-7 minutes) and they came out bright green and perfect texture. Served with baked chicken and a tossed salad, this made a wonderful meal. Thanks Sackville Girl!
