Mashed Potato, Cheese and Chive Gratin

Recipe by lazyme

This is a family favorite. It's simple and can be made ahead. I like to add a lot of pepper and sometimes roasted garlic. From Bon Appetit.

Really, really tasty dish. In my oven it took a bit longer than 30 minutes to get the top browned. Because of that next time I'll add a little more milk to them as they were a smidge dry. I also wasn't able to get chives so I substituted scallions and the result was very good.
