Creamy Potato Gratin

My kids are great fan of gratins, obviously gratins have their important place in our weekly menu. Since they love gratins with any vegetables, i do quite often with mixed veggies, but last week my younger one asked me for his favourite potato gratin with loads of cheese.Hence i prepared this alluring creamy potato gratin for our dinner. This gratin makes a super filling meal, when served with a grilled meat or grilled fish, you can have a wholesome and complete lunch or dinner. But i served mine with a simple salad and we had a super filling dinner.

I used low fat cream to make this delicious and very cheesy gratin, however this gratin is definitely a rich food. Its quite a healthy meal if served as small portions. This creamy potato gratin is definitely a kid's friendly dish and am sure kids will have this gratin without any fuss. This gratin is very easy to bake and this dish goes for no cooking method apart from baking. Many versions of making this creamy potato gratin exists, but mine is one of the easiest and simple version to give a try if you dont like spending more time in your kitchen.
Am sending this creamy dish to this week's blogging marathon as i picked Kid's delight-Creamy food as this week's theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#52.
