    lazyme's Note:

    This is now my favorite potato gratin of all time. The caramelized onions mixed with the goat cheese gives this dish a very rich flavor. Instead of all of the prep work stated in the recipe, I just use a mandoline to slice the potatoes (with the peel on) and layer the dish with raw ingredients. I have started adding about double the goat cheese called for. These are even good cold the next day. From Gourmet, September 1995.

      I made this last night. Excellent . Soo yummy, I added a little crumbled bacon left over from breakfast. I did not precook or peel the potatoes, just sliced in my food pro. Thanks for the great recipe.

      I did not cook my potatoes before making this. I used my mandoline and sliced the potatoes (I used red and white) very thinly. I also used more goat cheese and did not measure the milk; just poured it over until it came almost to the top. This was soooo good. My boys loved it and they aren't the biggest fans of goat cheese (I didn't tell them it was in it!). Thanks for a great recipe!
