You Say Potato, I Say Kryptonite

You Say Potato, I Say Kryptonite. . .

There is NOTHING that tempts me like a potato~ well, maybe HomeGoods :) ~  but when it comes to food, potatoes are my weakness. Anyway you serve them or slice them. . . mashed, scalloped, baked. . . and I guess now’s as good a time as any to confess:

 I do NOT share French Fries very well.

Since we are having a small-scale Thanksgiving this year, I thought this recipe for Potato Gratin with Rosemary Crust from Southern Living might do double duty~ since it blends sweet potatoes with Yukon gold potatoes. Although truthfully, I’d prefer to skip the turkey altogether and feast on sweet potato casserole AND mashed potatoes. . .but some family members would protest. . . *sigh* . . .

This recipe starts with prepared piecrusts~ a layer of chopped fresh rosemary, shredded Gruyère cheese and black pepper~ sandwiched between two layers of piecrust. Rosemary can overwhelm a dish~ you’ll want to use it sparingly unless you’re fond of it. I used a little more than the 1 Tablespoon called for, for our taste buds, since it’s a flavor we enjoy.

  Press the layered crusts in the bottom and up sides of a 9-inch springform pan~ fold edges under if needed and chill.

 Peel and thinly slice Yukon gold and sweet potatoes. Layer one-third each of Yukon gold potatoes, sweet potatoes, and salt in prepared crust. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup  Gruyère cheese. Repeat layers twice, pressing layers down slightly to fit.

Microwave 2/3 cup of heavy cream and 1 minced garlic clove in a 1-cup microwave-safe measuring cup on HIGH 45 seconds; pour over potato layers in pan.

 Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Cover pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet.

  Bake at 450° for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 25 minutes or until potatoes are done and crust is richly browned. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully transfer to a serving plate, and remove sides of pan. If desired, carefully slide gratin off bottom of pan using a long knife or narrow spatula. Garnish, if desired.

 In addition to your turkey, this gratin would be wonderful with beef tenderloin for the holidays~

You can find the complete recipe from Southern Living here~ it looks beautiful & impressive presented on a cake pedestal.

 Wishing you a Delicious

& Happy Thanksgiving!

  25. I can almost taste this! It looks so yummy!!!

  26. Yes!! I love any kind of potatoes too!! This recipe has my mouth watering!!

  27. What a perfect dish for a bridge luncheon, too. I could see it with a tangy salad and some lovely chicken.

  28. Beautiful presentation and photography – BRAVA!

  29. This is so interesting! I love rosemary…so looking forward to trying this. Would have never thought of a pie crust! Thanks for sharing!

  30. Oh, that looks almost to beautiful to eat… almost. Lovely post and recipe. Thank you!

  31. Yum!! And your pictures are stunning!

  32. My mouth is watering looking at your gorgeous photos. Potatoes and rosemary go so well together, don’t they? I love that you combined white potatoes with sweet potatoes. I am definitely trying this.

  33. I love potatoes, but hate mashed potatoes. I know the rest of the world thinks I’m weird. Any other way to prepared potatoes is fine. I love gratin potatoes, but have never heard about this version with the pie crust and rosemary. It looks delish! I’d probably give up the turkey….but not the crabmeat dressing….for this dish!

  34. It looks delicious, and I am with you on the potatoes! My excuse is that I am Irish, and I have spud blood! :)

  35. What a gorgeous looking potato dish! It certainly elevates potatoes to a new level.

  36. I came over from Stone Gable, because I adore potatoes just as you do. OMG, this is one of the prettiest potato dishes I’ve ever seen! We have lots of fresh rosemary in our herb garden. I know what’s on our Christmas dinner table! So glad you shared this one. Swoon!

  37. Oh have mercy!!! Your potatoes look devine! I have one that would protest if there were no mashed potatoes!!! ;0)

  38. You are speaking my love language, Mary! I too am a devoted potato lover!!! And your recipe and pictures look divine! I’m making this next week! Please look for a link back to this original post ON THE MENU MONDAY next week! YUMMY! Could I use one of your fabulous images with a photo credit and link back to you? Soooooooo beautiful!

  57. OMG, so nice to find your blog through the linky party today and this recipe. This must be made soon. Pinning this one.

  58. I have weakness for potatoes AND rosemary. What a fabulous combination of flavors. I pinned it, but your photos are so impressive it was hard to chose which one.

    Happy Thanksgiving Mary.

  59. I just acquired the site moncler this past Saturday and they are even prettier than they confirmed in images. I wore them out Sunday and that i got a great deal of Stares at them. They can be Wonderful!!!a

  60. Hey Mary and fellow readers,
    Made this dish to bring to Thanksgiving and while absolutely yummy and as decadent as expected, the crust was overly browned, almost to the point of not eating it. What a waste of wonderful flavors, Did anyone experience this? Thoughts to share? Otherwise, definitely a keeper but make sure to use enough cheese and let her rest a bit so the slices are as gorgeous as possible!

  61. I pay a visit everyday some web pages and websites to read content,
    however this webpage presents feature based writing.

  62. This looks amazing. I just saw it. Putting it on the Christmas menu for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  63. Great ωebsite. A lot of useful information here. I am sending it to some pals аans also sharing in delicious.

    And naturally, thank you to your swеat!
