Grated Potato, thyme and Gruyere Gratin

Some Facts About POTATO:
  • Potato is the world's most widely grown tuber crop, and the fourth largest food crop in terms of fresh produce — after rice, wheat, and maize (corn).
  • There are about five thousand potato varieties world wide
  • A medium potato (150g/5.3 oz) with the skin provides 27 mg vitamin C (45% of the Daily Value (DV)), 620 mg of potassium (18% of DV), 0.2 mg vitamin B6 (10% of DV) and trace amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, folate, niacin, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc.
EASE: 3.5/5. Few ingredients and only one bowl, a spoon, a grater and a peeler needed.
Prep time: 10mins. To peel and grate potatoes, grate cheese and combine all ingredients.
Cooking time:40mins.

TASTE: 3/5.
The dish was unevenly cooked - I used 1tsp dried thyme which was the main flavour. It was ok but I much prefer the taste and texture of a sliced potato gratin with just cheese and cream.

Would I make again? No.
