SAM_2086SAM_2093 SAM_2062SAM_2061Au Gratin Potatoes, Funeral Potatoes, Potatoes Dauphinoise it doesn’t matter what they are called they are essentially the same thing , delicious…… but they may kill you (maybe that’s why they are called funeral potatoes!) Not a dish for everyday that’s for sure. You don’t have to be too fussy with the assembly as long as they are evenly layered.

I have seen this made with milk instead of cream but it turns out a little soupy for my taste. If you are going to make this you might as well go all out !

If you are asked to bring a potato dish for Thanksgiving make it this one, easy but impressive.

I bought the White Cheddar Cheese already grated, if there is a short cut I’ll take it !
