I came up with this recipe a couple of years ago. I just wanted something that was effortless, I could put in the oven, and forget about it until done. It was a success from day one and It has become a must at our Thanksgiving and Christmas table.

I love the crispy texture that forms on top from all the cheeses. Yet, underneath is creamy, full of flavor, cheesy, and tender!

What is Potatoes Gratiné?

Potatoes gratiné is one of the most common of gratins and is known by various names including "gratin potatoes" and "Gratin de pommes de terre". Slices of boiled potato are put in a buttered fireproof dish, sprinkled with cheese and browned in the oven or under the grill (broiler). They may also be baked under a steamed crust of potatoes.

In North America, the dish is referred to variously as funeral potatoes, potatoes au gratin, or au gratin potatoes. (Note that the term scalloped originally referred to a style of seafood dish rather than to one specifically based on the scallop.) In French-speaking Canada, the dish is referred to as patates au gratin. Australians and New Zealanders refer to it as scalloped potatoes or potato bake.
