Old Fashioned Spuds

Scalloped potatoes, layered with chopped onion, minced corned beef and wafer-thin Yukon golds. Bathed in milk and baked in Janine's little gratin dish. Salt, pepper. No cheese this time, just topped with a dot or two of butter here and there. Put the gratin dish on a baking sheet with sides, as it will likely bubble over.

350 degrees F. One hour.

Deeply, comfortingly delicious to my half-Irish heart.

Greg, it didn't take much corned beef, either, more of a flavoring than a meaty presence.

Cookiecrumb, perhaps so, we'll never know. Probably just a lucky shot.
