Original recipe calls for Pecorino Romano and capers. Didn't have either so made with gouda - calories would come out about the same though...

Recipe Ingredients for Potato Gratin

1 garlic clove, halved
6 tablespoons Olive oil
2 cups chopped onions
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 1/4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, very thinly sliced
8 tablespoons grated cheese, divided
2 cups chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Potato Gratin

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Rub 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish with cut side of garlic clove. Brush dish with olive oil. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, sprinkle with coarse salt, and sauté until soft and beginning to brown, stirring frequently, about 13 minutes.

  2. Arrange 1/3 of potatoes in even layer in prepared dish. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper. Scatter half of onions over. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Repeat layering with half of remaining potatoes, coarse salt and pepper, remaining onions, 2 tablespoons cheese. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Arrange remaining potato slices over. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Pour chicken broth over. Press down firmly on potatoes to compact gratin.

  3. Cover gratin tightly with foil and bake until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 4 tablespoons cheese. Bake gratin uncovered until cheese is lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let gratin stand 10 minutes at room temperature before serving.
