Potato & Yam Gratin

I love casseroles!
They are fast and easy.
Popped in the oven and off you go to take care of other things when you have guests coming.
I make this for the Holidays every year.
For me it's far more fancy the mashed potatoes and again, it's actually easier.
It has a crunchy top so you don't miss the bread.
You know, my site is mostly all about fast and easy but, still comforting gourmet foods.
This casserole is a no fuss as you'll see...
Potato & Yam Gratin

5 large white potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4" thick 
2 large yams, peeled and sliced 1/4" thick
2 large yellow onions, peeled and sliced 1/4" thick
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup 35% cream
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp each salt, pepper, oregano

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese 
1tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp EVOO

Begin to layer the white potatoes in a large enough ungreased casserole dish, in one even layer.
Take a slice of onions, separate the rings, layer these over the potatoes.
Sprinkle evenly with 1 tbsp flour. 
a pinch of salt & pepper,
a pinch of oregano
and top with one layer of yams.
Continue this step until finished.
Mix the broth and cream together.
Pour over the casserole dish.
Mix the dry ingredients together.
Sprinkle over the casserole
Drizzle with oil

Bake in a preheated 350F oven covered with foil. After 30 min remove foil and bake for another 20 min.until fork tender and crumbs are golden.
