Muffin-Pan Potato Gratins

This is our new favorite side dish. I found this in Everyday Food (on my trusty iPad) and thought they were right up our alley. I was right.  I am not a big potato fan, but these potato gratins are fabulous!!

I made sure to slice the potatoes really thin so they would cook quickly (I hate undercooked potatoes).  I have already made these several times over the past few weeks.  The last time I made this, I added some parmesan cheese on top.  That put them over the top!  If you are looking for a quick and easy potato dish - this is it!

Muffin-Pan Potato Gratins

Muffin-pan Potato Gratins
adapted from Everyday Food

  • 2 medium russet potatoes (about 3/4 pound each)
  • dried rosemary
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • 6 Tbsp heavy cream

Preheat oven to 400.  Spray 6 standard muffin cups with cooking spray.  

Thinly slice potatoes.  Place 2 slices in each up and season with coarse salt, ground pepper and rosemary.  Continue adding potatoes, seasoning every two slices, until cups are filled.  Pour 1 tablespoon heavy cream over each.  

Bake until potatoes are golden brown and tender when pierced with a knife, 30-35 minutes.  Run a thin knife around each gratin.  Place a baking sheet or large plate over pan and invert to release gratins.  Flip right side up and serve.
