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

3 tbsp flour
1 tsp each salt, pepper, oregano
