I pulled this recipe (potatoes gratin) up on the internet b/c I needed a potato dish to do w/ a beef rack and let me tell you it was THE HIT of the family Xmas dinner! I have made it many times in the last few years and people rant and rave over it! I was thinking of making it to go w/ the rack of lamb for my husband's bday dinner -- the only thing I do differently is parboil the potatoes before slicing them. And I am very liberal w the cheese and creme. It is an amazing, amazing side dish for beef and lamb.
