1750 Inn at Sandwich Center Potato Gratin
Frozen, grated Ore-Ida Potatoes, thawed, (about 1/3 cup per serving),
Lemon pepper, to taste,
Sea salt, to taste,
Gruyere cheese, grated (you can use Swiss cheese or a blend of both), about 1 tablespoon per serving.
Cream, 1 to 2 teaspoons per serving. (You can use more if you want them creamier. You can also use half & half.)
Optional: Onion powder (about 1/4 teaspoon for 6 servings), Garlic powder (about ¼ teaspoon for 6 servings), or sautéed shallots or onions.
Distribute evenly in muffin tin or ramekins. Drizzle potatoes with cream. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Oven temps vary so check after 25 minutes. Potatoes should be only slightly browned but cooked through. Remove from oven and cool.
Use a spatula to loosen the potatoes around the edge then slip it under the potatoes, lift out and place on your serving dish….yummmm-y!
Note: This is such a versatile dish so, experiment with other herbs and spices but keep it simple and have fun.
