Creamy Potato Gratin

Creamy Potato Gratin (Potatisgratäng)

 

Yum, creamy, garlic potatoes! Seems to be a hit at any occasion…! It works great with meat of any kind, and tastes great the next day as well when it has soaked up all the cream and garlic. I don’t add any cheese to this dish as I use breadcrumbs instead which adds a bit of a hard crust. Please try and let me know what you think!
