The whole family will love this Potato Gratin, including the kids. My kids love this Potato Gratin whenever I serve it for dinner. They would actually happily eat a plate of this just as it is and who could blame them? I totally could too.
I recommend using a waxy type of potatoes like yukon golds or similar variety (Elfe in the UK). Yukon golds are my favourite for that amazing buttery flavour that they have, without having to add tons of butter.
If you don't like parmesan, then feel free to substitute with cheddar, I just think parmesan is the best cheese for a potato gratin, as it's got heaps of flavour that just pairs amazing well with the garlic.
Usually, potato gratin would have heaps of cream, but I just use stock, as with the layer of potato and parmesan, it is creamy and velvety enough without having to add heaps of additional syns.
There is no way I am spoiling the flavours by adding something like quark or yoghurt - those do have their place in certain recipes, but potato gratin definitely is not one of them.
Just look at that golden, cheesy potato for a second, take it in, smell the screen, you know you want to make this right? I mean who wouldn't it does look pretty darn good right?
In fact I am typing this up a few days after making this amazing Potato Gratin, and can't help but crave it again right now. It is just screaming at me - eat me now!!
