3 g / 1 tsp minced rosemary
750 g / 1lb 10oz yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into slices ⅛” inch (0.3 cm) thick

5 g / 1 tbsp freshly chopped thyme
8 g / 2 tsp flour

100 g / 1 cup grated gruyere cheese, divided
125 ml / ½ cup 35% cream


1. Melt 28g / 2 tbsp Canola Harvest margarine with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and softened. Stir in garlic and rosemary, cook for 1 minute, remove from heat and let cool.
