Potato Gratin...all I can say is yum!

While in South Carolina, I saw a magazine in our hotel room and one evening I was leafing through it and found this recipe. I copied it down and tried it this week. My husband gave it two thumbs up after he had three servings.

Potato Gratin
4 large baking potatoes, peeled and halved
2 tsp salt
4 TB unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp white pepper
3 T olive oil
2 large onions, halved and and thinly sliced
2/3 cup beef broth
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Boil potatoes until tender. Mash potatoes with butter, milk, and white pepper. Transfer to a greased deep casserole, leaving 1 inch on top. Heat oil and cook onions until soft and golden brown. Spread onions over potated and top with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until heating through and cheese is bubbly.

I actually made this ahead and heated it up a couple of nights later. I baked it a little longer since it was in the oven and covered it for part of the time. Wow, was it tasty.

I think you change the flavoring by changing the types of potatoes and cheese.
