      After reviewing all the gratin recipes on zaar, I chose this one and it was a big hit with my family. I love that it uses ingredients I already had in my kitchen. This recipe is easy enough that I don't have to read the recipe next time around, I know it by heart now. I also took off the foil for the last 15 minutes, then let stand for 15 minutes after removing from the oven. Rich tasting and very creamy texture. This is a keeper!! Thanks

      Really tasty! Don't forget the onion; it's not on the ingredient list! I used one diced sweet onion. I would have put paprika & some cayenne on top of the bottom layer & then again on top layer--paprika's taste really comes out when cooked & I love spicy foods! Excellent recipe!

      Terriffic potatoes! So creamy and rich. I used 2tbsp butter instead of 3. I used 2% milk, and added a few dashes of garlic salt (we like garlic at our house). The garlic didn't really come through, but I think it probably did add to the flavor. Though they would've been excellent without it I'm sure. I used quite a bit of paprika on top, and it was delicious. For the onions, I used approximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup of diced onion as the middle layer. It added a great flavor to the dish as well. Thanks for the recipe.
