Crispy Potatoes Au Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Charmie777

Easy to put together, and oh so cheesy! If desired, you can stir in 2 cups diced ham along with the cheese mixture.

Very good and easy to make, a great side dish. I sliced the potatoes very thinly and used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. To our taste, it could use a bit more salt. I baked it at a lower temperature (325 deg. F.) for a longer time (an hour and 20 minutes approximately) as I was baking a ham at the same time. Made for the Dining Daredevils for ZWT5.
