RECIPE: Potato Au Gratin

1 yellow onion thinly sliced
2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 pounds russet potatoes ( 4 large potatoes)
2 cups heavy cream
2.5 cups of grated gouda cheese
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

preheat oven to 350 degrees.

butter the inside of a 10x15x2 inch baking dish

saute the onions in olive oil and butter on medium low heat until tender (about 15 minutes)

peel the potatoes, then thinly slice them by hand. mix the sliced potatoes with 2 cups of cream, 2 cups of gouda cheese, salt and pepper. add the onions and mix well.

pour the potatoes into the baking dish. press down to smooth the potatoes. combine the remaining gouda cheese sprinkle on top. Bake for 1.5 hrs until the potatoes are very tender and the top is browned and bubbly. Allow to set for 10 minutes and serve.

so i’m not sure what I did, but the cream and cheese didn’t really form the creamy mesh I was hoping it would. it kinda baked crumble-y and didn’t act like glue at all! still yummy!
