The whole family will love this Potato Gratin, including the kids. My kids love this Potato Gratin whenever I serve it for dinner. They would actually happily eat a plate of this just as it is and who could blame them? I totally could too.

I recommend using a waxy type of potatoes like yukon golds or similar variety (Elfe in the UK). Yukon golds are my favourite for that amazing buttery flavour that they have, without having to add tons of butter.

If you don't like parmesan, then feel free to substitute with cheddar, I just think parmesan is the best cheese for a potato gratin, as it's got heaps of flavour that just pairs amazing well with the garlic.

Usually, potato gratin would have heaps of cream, but I just use stock, as with the layer of potato and parmesan, it is creamy and velvety enough without having to add heaps of additional calories.

There is no way I am spoiling the flavours by adding something like quark or yoghurt - those do have their place in certain recipes, but potato gratin definitely is not one of them.

    Cooked these potatoes this evening for dinner and they were lovely, served them with your thai spiced salmon filo parcels and some broccolli, it was delicious I made the entire recipe and split it between 2, only 2 hea in the entire serving so thought why not. My husband thinks I have a chef stashed in the kitchen.

    Looks amazing, I fancy adding some wee bits of bacon through it. Do you think this would taste nice? x

      That sounds like a perfect addition to me, you could even do slices of ham.

    Do you think this would work with grated mozzarella instead of parmesan?

    • Shevy (Slimming Eats) says

      The Parmesan adds flavour. I would substitute with a strong cheddar rather than mozzarella. Hope that helps.

    I made this as couldn’t be bothered peeling and ricing potatoes.. it was much more appealing to whack them all through the mandolin. Thanks for posing this; I’d never have thought to try potatoes this way!

    A great recipe. I had no cream and the stock really helped. A great addition to the Sunday roast and a good exchange for the roast potato. Loved by fussy teenagers and grumpy dad lol

    Omg this was absolutely delicious! I cut the ingredients by a third as it was only for me and my husband but I seriously wished I hadn’t. Had it with steak and they went gorgeous together. This is definitely my new favourite way of having potatoes.
