Jansson's Temptation - Potty about Potatoes-

This blog is asking for a bit of audience participation since this recipe is being entered Lovethegarden.com Potty About Potatoes competition. The recipe which gets the most votes will be win its   blogger (Meee) a £200 meal in any chosen restaurant.  
So I am hoping for plenty of votes to celebrate this very simple recipe made with humble tatties.

 This dish  is a take on Gratin Dauphinois/pommes lyonnaises, a kind of crazy Swedish version of this very lyonnais dish. What could be more delicious than cream onions potatoes baked slowly in cream and butter and to give it a weird twist the addition of  anchovies.
Get ready.....for...

Great minds think alike- Such a good recipe - looking forward to read your article- wasn't on your blog, didn't see it. Will you vote for it then:)

This is a great dish and you've made it look delicious. I'm always scared off a bit by the amount of cream - I'm such a wimp. But of course I'll vote for it.

oh no no no don't be scared double cream is 48% of the total amount (of cream) divide this by the number of diners and it is not tooo scary
Thanks for your vote
