I’m always searching for a new way to use potatoes for dinner.  Kate is a fellow food blogger from Indianapolis who featured this simple but tasty dish.  Using a mandoline, it takes no time to put this dish together.  These can be tweaked to your liking…other cheeses or the addition of thyme/other herbs would be fabulous. The boys asked how many they could have…the sign of a successful recipe. 

Kate’s Kitchen is my featured blog for the Weekend Blog Showcase.  Thanks, Kate!

Individual Potato Gratins….from the blog Kate’s Kitchen, adapted from Everyday Food

“B” sized red potatoes (look for potatoes that are approximately the diameter of your muffin tin openings)
Freshly ground black pepper
Garlic powder
Gruyere cheese, grated (can also use Romano or Parmesan)

Preheat oven to 400º. Grease muffin tins with butter or Pam.

Slice the potatoes thinly…a mandoline is very helpful, but it’s also easily done with a knife.  Lay two slices of potatoes in each muffin cup.  Sprinkle with seasonings.  Repeat with two more slices, and continue till cups are full.  Add one tablespoon of cream to each gratin and top with cheese.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.
