Onion Potato Gratin

Onion Potato Gratin

I don’t know where I would be without onions.  I put onions in almost everything.  Here is a recipe where the humble onion gets to be the star which is sure to become a household favorite. 


4 Large Thinly Sliced Onions

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Butter

6 Large Sliced Potatoes

1 Cup Cream

3 Sprigs Chopped Rosemary

Preheat your oven to 350° F.  In a large size sauté pan place the sliced onions, butter and brown sugar over a low heat.  Cook for 40 minutes until caramelized.  Stir occasionally.  Grease a shallow baking dish with olive oil.  Do not peel the potatoes.  Just slice them.  Place a layer of potatoes in the baking dish and then a layer of onions.  Drizzle with the cream and sprinkle with the chopped rosemary.  Repeat until all ingredients are used, ending with the onions, cream and rosemary.  Bake for 1 hour until the top is golden and bubbly.  Serves 4
