2 fennel bulbs, small
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 pounds russet potatoes (4 large potatoes)
2 cups half and half cream
2 tablespoons half and half cream

  7. Add the sauteed fennel and onion and mix well.

  8. Pour the potatoes into the baking dish. Press down to smooth the potatoes.

  9. Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream and 1/2 cup of Gruyère and sprinkle on the top.

  10. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, until the potatoes are very tender and the top is browned and bubbly.

  11. Allow to set for 10 minutes and serve
