Creamy spinach and potato gratin


Creamy spinach and potato gratin
This is a gratin with a difference: before going in the oven, the layers of spinach and potato are topped with cream in which Mont d'Or cheese has been melted (or another cheese, if you prefer).

Remarks

Mont d'Or is a delicious seasonal cheese that I particularly recommend for this recipe, but if you don't have any, use another cheese you enjoy, preferably a "soft paste" type.
