Fancy Potatos Au Gratin

Hi Again

Time for another recipe :) this time a side dish, but a hearty one which is a good thing to have around in case any relatives or friends surprise ya by being a vegetarian :)

 Soo Potato Au gratin is a pretty standard recipe, but i like to put my own spin on traditional dishes, so without any further ado, fancy's potatos au gratin

6 or 7 med / large red potatos, clean peeled and blinded (eyes removed) then slice them in 3mm round slices, like the thinner the better, make like you are doing potato chips ( use a big knife so you keep yer fingers)

Then get a small casserole dish (mines shallow an oval about 7by12

mix together:
1cup half and half
3 tbsp thick greek plain yogurt
toss the potato circles in the cream and put in casserole dish making sure the potatos are all layed flat so it looks like layers

put ontop 1/4 a stick of butter,
ground pepper
dash of salt

then make a topping crust out of:
about 1/4 cup fine chopped gruyere
about 1/4 cup fine chopped white sharp cheddar
2 tbsp seasoned bread crumbs,
3 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
a bit of olive oil

stick in the oven for about an hour at 375

totally easy
(you may want to put a cookie tray under so that nothing drips in your oven)

:) & eat yum!!

hearty, vegetarian and soomething different to do with your potatos

I served this as a side dish for baked salmon seared scallops (in a lemon garlic butter) and steamed fresh spinach,

for side salad just a few cut up vine ripened fresh tomatos (with oregano, parsley, olive oil, salt, balsamic vinegar)
