Top Review by Eat and be Merry

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
