Golden Potato and Onion Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by cyaos

I couldn't find this among all the potato and onion recipes and it is really quite good. I don't really like potatoes while my boyfriend would eat them everyday if he could - this is one of the ways I will eat them so he can have them once a week. I got this off of MSN. The recipe calls for a bread crumb topping but I have made it without and it is still fabulous. I will serve this with roast chicken or ham.

This was incredibly good! I made this exactly as posted, except I halved the recipe and cooked it in a 9-inch-square pan. I used my mandolin to slice the onions and potatoes really thin. I did not use the bread crumb topping either, but did sprinkle some parsley on the potatoes for color. The potatoes smelled heavenly, they were so tender and delicious! I think this would be wonderful for a holiday dinner, or any meal that you want to spruce up. Thanks for sharing this keeper! Made for Spring PAC 2011.
