Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    This is so good. I tasted the potato slices as I was assembling the gratin, they tasted great without the addition of the cheese, nutmeg, pepper and cream. By cooking the potato in the milk/water mixture with salt, minced garlic and bay leaves, they became very flavorful on their own. I made half a recipe in a 9 x 7 x 2 gratin dish, used Jarlsberg cheese because I have a big chunk that needs to be used and baked for 45 minutes.

    This recipe is lighter than some gratin recipes because there is less cream in it.

    Pg. 99. This is the first recipe I've made from this book and it's a winner. This is really, really good! And quite easy. It did not take a full hour to cook, closer to 45-50 minutes. Happily, there are leftovers for tomorrow!
