This was good, but we felt like it may be missing something. It was a bit bland for our tastes. Also, in the future I might use a little less chicken broth, as we noticed that it made the potatoes somewhat waterlogged. I'm sure with some tweaking I would really enjoy this. Thanks for posting.
This was such a nice change from regular creamy gratins, the fried onions mixed with the stock really infuses the potatoes & the fresh herbs really set it off. I loved it, a keeper for sure. Thanks for posting!
