APPLE AND POTATO GRATIN HOLLANDER
Recipe by good friends from Holland, Joëp and Marian Verwey. What a luscious dish! I don't know how they do it----use all that fattening stuff, yet stay in shape! Joëp and Marian are excellent cooks, and teaching their daughters, Jorinde and Lisanne, too. I would serve this dish with roast pork or baked ham; but it's great served with anything you would choose---like vegetables only. (Just kiss your diet good-bye!!)
