These potatoes are AMAZING! They are so simple to make but so good that I had to share them on "Might Have Missed Monday." I posted this recipe last November. However, I have made these numerous times. They are a great side with steak and the kids love them (minus the blue cheese for my daughter.)
Potato and Blue Cheese Gratin
Gourmet, December 2005
Tender, rich, and browned on top, this easy potato gratin gets loads of flavor from a very minimal amount of blue cheese that is added at the last minute.
1 1/2 lb medium yellow-fleshed potatoes
1 cup heavy cream
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 oz)
Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 425°F.
Peel potatoes and slice 1/8 inch thick, then toss with cream, garlic, salt, and pepper in skillet. Cover with foil and roast until potatoes are very tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and preheat broiler. Remove foil and sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Broil until top is browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
Family Rating: two thumbs up! The kids loved these!
