Every dish needs a side dish. And I am always on the hunt for some good side dishes. Before I enjoyed cooking I would grab a box of potatoes or rice. But now that I am older and wiser, I like to make fresher and home made side dishes. I have nothing against the boxed stuff. In fact I still use it when I need something quick. But there is nothing like homemade potatoes. Potatoes anything is great in my book, but then you get creative and make things like garlic mashed potatoes, twice baked potatoes, and smashed potatoes (ooohhh can’t wait to share that one with you all. Your gonna love it!). So when I saw that I could make Au Gratin Potatoes and all homemade I was in.
Homemade Au Gratin Potatoes…you got to be kidding, right?
There is no such thing. The only way to have Au Gratin is to have the boxed kind…Well that is the old way of thinking. What is that saying? Out with the old, in with the new. Well welcome NEW fresh ingredients and homemade Au Gratin Potatoes. These babies were amazing. Let me tell you something. There is something about making a dish that has no preservatives and all fresh ingredients. Something about it being real food and the best part is that they are healthy for you. I know that potatoes aren’t super healthy for you, but in moderation they are ok for you. Okay maybe not, but just go with me k. You’ll feel much better about eating and making them this way.
