Potato gratin is a delicious everyday dish that is perfect as a main course with a salad or as a side for other dishes. Since the potatoes are sliced very thinly, the gratin becomes soft and almost like a smooth cake. The apples give the gratin an extra kick! There's a crispy layer on top, and the perfectly soft and tasty gratin underneath. The apples perfectly match the potatoes and make the dish fruity and juicy.

Ingredients for the Gratin (about 4 servings):

750g "Waxy"potatoes
1 Onion
1 Apple
2 Garlic cloves
150ml Cream
100ml Milk
1 Egg
1tbsp Oregano
1tbsp Parsley
1tsp Cumin
1tsp Paprika powder
Salt, Pepper
About 60g Parmesan cheese

750g Potatoes

Peel the potatoes and grate them thinly. Of course, you can also cut thin slices with a knife, but they will never be as fine as with a grater. This gives the dish a fancy touch ;). Put the potatoes in salted water.

1 Apple · 1 Onion · 2 Garlic cloves

Peel and grate the apple as well or cut it into thin strips with a peeler. Peel the onion and cut into very thin slices or rings. Finely chop the garlic cloves.

100ml Milk · 150ml Cream · 1 Egg · 1tsp Cumin · 1tbsp Parsley · 1tbsp Oregano · 1tsp Paprika powder · Nutmeg · Salt · Pepper · Chili

Next, mix the milk, cream and 50ml of water. Beat in the egg and add all the spices.
Attention: Add enough salt, because the potatoes absorb a lot. You should definitely over-season a bit!

Preheat the oven to 200°C top and bottom heat. In a tart pan, start layering the potatoes. After a layer of only potatoes add a layer of onion, garlic and apple.

Then keep this rhythm of 1-2 layers of only potatoes, then a layer of onion, garlic and apple. You do not have to be too precise, because the slices are very thin anyway. After a few layers, pour some of the milk-cream mixture on top.

60g Parmesan

Repeat these steps until all ingredients are used. Put the potato gratin in the oven. After about 30 minutes, remove briefly and add the parmesan cheese as the top layer. Return to the oven and bake for about 15 more minutes.
