      There is no better way to prepare a gratin - I love your recipe! It is soft in the middle but crunchy in the edges. Who needs meet, if you can have this dish? Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks, Mirj! the size of the pan wasn't specified. I ended up using 2 gratin dishes then forgot to measure the liquid, lol. It took longer to cook but was heavenly when done (in about an hour). The nutmeg was really nice & the garlic was perfect. Very easy even though I sliced teh spuds by hand...cut them in half so there is a flat side & it's easy. It took longer to layer! But well worth it. I'm glad I ended up w/2 pans because we had 1 w/dinner & 1 for breakfast, lol!!! Made for Kitchen Witches ZWT5! xo Bethie

      Yummmmmm! I had larger potatoes, so I used only eight. I loved nutmeg and garlic. I even resisted my urge to add cheese and I still thought this was terrific. Thanx for sharing.
