Cheesy Potato Gratin
Cheesy Potato Gratin – it’s cheesy, it’s crispy, it’s melt-in-your-mouth tender, it’s unbelievable. Unbelievable how a splash of cream & a sprinkling of cheese can bring ordinary potatoes into something extraordinary. I think this dish has the potential to do more than just satisfy hunger for something gourmet. It has the potential to make any novice cook look like a chef, because it’s so delicious no one will guess a 5 year old could’ve put this together.

Cheesy Potato Gratin
A delicious dish made with sliced potatoes, cheese and a creamy mixture baked to perfection.
Preheat oven to 475F.
Sprinkle peeled & sliced potatoes with salt and toss together to coat.
Arrange potatoes in ovenproof baking dish, like pictured above.
Sprinkle 1 tsp garlic powder & freshly ground black pepper over the potatoes.
Pour 1 cup heavy cream on top.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
Put in 475°F oven for 10 minutes.
Turn the heat down to 400°F & bake for another 35-40 minutes.
Once the potatoes are soft (prick with fork to test) remove foil, pour remaining 1/2 cup cream over potatoes & sprinkle with cheese.
Turn oven to broil & allow the tops of the potatoes to brown up, about 4-5 minutes.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.
*Cheese type can be substituted to your liking. Any good melting cheese will work fine for this dish.
