Mixed Potato Gratin – So Good!!

27th March, 2019

Here it is folks, my Mixed Potato Gratin.

We were short on time, so I sped up the process by part cooking in the microwave which I’ve also added to recipe.

4 medium potatoes
1 medium sweet potato
1 small brown onion
1 small red onion
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons plain flour
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups of grated cheese
Fresh parsley 

– Thinly slice all spuds (I kept the skin on) and slice onions into thin rings
In a greased oven proof dish, layer sliced spuds and onions until all used up.
– On the stove in medium saucepan melt the butter. Once melted, add flour and cook for 1 minute.
– Add half a cup of milk at a time, constantly stirring until all milk is added and sauce has thickened.
– Remove from heat and add cheese stirring for a minute until all melted.
– Add salt and pepper to season and pour over the spuds.

Either place in microwave uncovered for 20 minutes on high, followed by 15 minutes covered in oven, and the last 5 minutes uncovered


90 minutes in the oven at 200°C (covered for 80 minutes, uncovered for 10 minutes)

Sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Voila! The perfect side dish.

Enjoy x

    I’ve never thought to give potato gratin a head start in the microwave! Such a handy tip, I’m always too impatient and end up eating it when it’s still a bit too hard 😆 thanks for sharing!
