This recipe is delightful because your effort is minimal, and the takeaway is off the charts. It's made traditionally, with cream and Dijon - a polite nod to the French - so really, just four main ingredients aside from seasonings. Please do it again and again. I love it with just a green salad, but it does go well with roasted chicken, browned sausages, or the hub's favorite steak.
Make this gratin for a celebratory supper or cozy night by the fire...or brunch...or nothing. It needs no exceptional circumstance because it will turn your meal into something special.
"Remember to let the gratin cool a little, it tastes better if it isn't scalding hot."
Notes: Cream is heavy whipping cream.
