Potato Gratin


This is probably a lighter version than you’re used to. I used milk versus cream and less cheese, but I did add layers of mushrooms and onions sauteed in duck fat and topped it with fresh baguette crumbs also sauteed in duck fat. Lighter…really? Regardless, it’s one delicious little potato lasagne. I also added some herbs like chive and lavosh from the garden. Best tip…don’t be stingy with the salt! Those taters are thirsty.

Ideas for the next attempt.
1. Add a layer of bread crumbs inside as well as on top to absorb all the milk.
2. Flavor the milk with spice like nutmeg and bay leaf. Maybe try half and half.
3. Add a layer of greens like spinach or kale.
