Mini Potato Au Gratin


These are the cutest little things! I made them a couple weeks ago, see I told you I’m that far behind in blogging J and devoured them! They would be perfect for a dinner party since you can serve them on a platter and let everyone pick which one they want. The base recipe is has the perfect combination of seasoning and cheese but you could easily change up the seasoning and type of cheese – the possibilities are virtually endless! I’ll be making these over and over again!




B sized potatoes

Salt

Fresh ground pepper

 Garlic powder

12 tsp aged sharp cheddar cheese

12 Tbsp light cream


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub the potatoes. Slice them very thinly. You could use a mandoline but since I don’t have one, I just did it by hand and it worked out fine.  Lightly spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.


Layer two slices of the potato in each muffin cup. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add two more slices of potato and season with salt and pepper and 1 tsp of cheese. Continue adding two slices of potatoes and seasonings until you fill the cups with potatoes. On the last layer, finish with just salt and pepper. Pour one tablespoon of cream into each muffin cup.


Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and the top layer is crispy.
