I had some potatoes in the fridge and I didn't know what to do with them, so, while I was doing some laundry, I started to have some ideas on how I would cook them. I was thinking maybe mashed or just roasted, until I thought about this delicious Potato Gratin recipe that I love! This a wonderful side dish and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
LOL - I had extra potatoes on hand too. Last night I made a cream cheese potato soup, but this potato gratin looks really sinful and delicious:D The perfect way to use up those potatoes.
Baking is my Zen
I love potatoes and cheese together. Nice photos.
Love potatoes! Try not to eat them as much as I used to....
My mother-in-law used to hand grate potatoes, add a little salt and pepper, put them in a casserole, pour heavy cream til it came to the top. Put it in a slow oven and checked often. When the cream disappeared, she added more. I don't DARE make this anymore but I have to tell you these are the BEST potatoes I have ever had in my life!

you can't really go wrong with potatoes and cheese. that said, i like the combination of cheeses you used and the touch of paprika. great spur-of-the-moment creation!
I love potatoes gratin! It is possibly my favorite way to prepare. I love the burnt crust you've got on here...browned cheese is the only way to go.
Thank you all for visiting my blog!

Such a wonderful comfort food! Perfect for cold, winter days! Again stunning photos!
Thank you for sharing this great recipe. I sent it to my email address thinking that I could just print it but instead it printed ll pages before I was able to get the recipe. I wish you had a box that says "Print" and only print the recipe. It's a waste of a lot of paper and ink.
My hubby is such a potato person. he is going to love this.
Thank you everyone!
I made this today with the Colombian white cheese...It was so good.. Thanks
