Fries Au Gratin
For this project, I used a 2″ x 3″ x 1.5″h single serving rectangular baking dish (see pictured).
STEP #3. Sprinkle a layer of garlic.
STEP #5. Repeat the layers.
STEP #6. Pour over the top heavy whipping cream. Be sure to cover the potatoes.
STEP #7. Cover with aluminum foil.
STEP #8. Slash holes on the top for ventilation.
STEP #9. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
STEP #10. Uncover and bake an additional 15-20 minutes until golden brown and creamy.
TIP: make sure the sauce has thickened by spooning a corner of the dish to see if it’s creamy. If it’s not, then bake it for another 10-15 minutes longer.
GARNISH: add chopped parsley on top.
Overall, it was fun turning a staple into a simple gourmet dish that families can try at home. I hope that you’ll agree it’s easy, and you’ll have to let me know what you think.
