  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced/400°F/gas mark 6; oil four 1-cup (250ml/8 fluid ounce) shallow ovenproof baking dishes.
  2. Melt 10g of the butter in a medium saucepan; cook the onion, leek and garlic, stirring, until softened.
  3. Meawhile, use a potato masher to gently crush the potato in a large bowl; stir in the onion, leek, garlic mixture.
  4. Melt the remaining butter in the same pan, add flour; cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens and bubbles; gradually stir in the milk; cook, stirring, until the white sauce boils and thickens; remove the pan from the heat; sir in the thyme and half the cheese.
  5. Stir the white sauce into the potato mixture; spoon the gratin mixture into the prepared dishes; sprinkle each with the chopped and grated cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned and the bacon is crisp.
  7. NOTE: What Australians call a brown onion is what Americans call a yellow onion, and I'm not sure what everyone else calls them. For some reason - though I've done so in the past - I wasn't able to include this in the ingredients.
