I decided to try making potatoes au gratin in my microwave using this recipe. Here's how it went in blurry phone pictures:
Ingredients. The ice cream can contains salt, not ice cream.
It was less like a gratin and more like cheesy baked potato slices, probably because I didn't cut the potatoes thinly enough and used less cheese than advised. But it was still excellent. I could have passed out from joy.
The very next night, I had pasta topped with pork and beans. Hehe. Baby steps, friends, baby steps.
