Chorizo and Potato Gratin

The fridge was looking decidedly bare tonight, eggs and chorizo was all that was there. You would think that would lead to a nice tortilla (plenty of spuds in, phew!), but no... had a flick through Rachel Allen's Easy Meals and found a bacon and potato gratin which I've done before for the in-laws, which went down so well, she asked me for the recipe! Since I had no bacon, I substituted chorizo, and it was delish.

Simple it is. Fry off the chorizo (you can use bacon here if you wish!), add an onion and some garlic. Layer the peeled sliced potatoes on the bottom of your dish, spread the chorizo and onion mix over this, then another layer of spuds, season, pour over some cream and some grated cheese. Oven at gas mark 6 for about 45 minutes, covered in foil, then remove the foil and give it another half hour to crisp up.

 I will definitely do this again. Scrummy.
