"Yummy! For those of you who don't know, AU Gratin doesn't mean it has cheese in it, It means its normally cooked to leave a golden brown crust over it, you can use egg, cheese, bread crumbs, ect"

"I can't figure out what is "au gratin" about these potatoes. I don't see any cheese at all in the recipe."
