On this recipe if you notice I did not add any soft cheese and still turn out to be very yummy and tasty . If you prefer to add cream cheese you simply add it to the ingredients and it will add more creamy texture to the Gratin.
Gratin can also be made from a thinly sliced potato that are simply arranged into layers. Gratin is very welcoming and tempting table menu that can join all the family together in an unforgettable dinner party.
Some recipes suggest using breadcrumb in place of cheese. Breadcrumb is amazing it will give it even more brown top crunchy layer after placing in oven.
