potato gratin

i made seafood tomyam for dinner
the kids love it
but i cannot eat seafood
my little girl will scratch here & there
as she has severe eczema
and seafood is a big NO
can you see the link between mommy-baby?
so, this is what mommy had for dinner
(adapted from marshallcavendish mini cookbooks - potatoes)

  • 4 potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4cups heavy cream <-- i opt to use milk only
  • 2oz gruyere cheese
  • 2oz parmesan cheese <-- i used 4oz of parmesan. gruyere is non-avail
  • salt, pepper & nutmeg to taste
  • topping: 2oz cheese + 1oz diced butter
  1. preheat oven 150C & grease gratin dish with butter
  2. peel & slice potatoes (1/4inch thick)
  3. beat eggs with cream. beat in cheese
  4. season with salt, pepper & nutmeg
  5. add in sliced potatoes. mix well & ensure potatoes are evenly coated
  6. pour mixture into gratin dish. top with topping materials (i totally forgot abt the butter!)
  7. bake for 1 1/2hours, or until potatoes are tender
  8. serve immediately

its that good.. a portion for 2.. vanished in 1 sitting by 1 small-frame (definitely starving) lady! haha!
