Another option for potatoes

In this recipe we used boiled potatoes that were then finished cooking and gratinating in the oven, but did you know that you can also prepare them in another way? A very famous variant of potatoes in cream sauce and very popular in bars is to fry the potatoes. Whether cut into sticks or cubes, using fried potatoes for this recipe is a good option.

Another very famous dish of creamed potatoes, of French origin, is the ‘Gratin dauphinois’, which consists of cooking layers of thin slices of potatoes with cream in between them. The simple flavor of the cream can be infused with any aromatic herb, such as rosemary, or one or two cloves of garlic.

In short, there is not enough to count the recipes for creamed potatoes. I recommend you to prepare different recipes so you can identify a flavor that you like. Everyone has their own tastes!
