Mixed Potato Gratin

With Thanksgiving just 8 days away it’s time to step it up here on What’s Gaby Cooking. I’ve got loads of sides, rolls, and a turkey 101 post coming for ya in the next few days.

Today it’s all about potatoes. Sweet Potatoes and regular Potatoes. It’s awesome.

As you all know, I’m obsessed with cheese. So any chance that I get to put an obscene amount of cheese in any dish, is kinda my favorite thing.

I’ve made plenty gratins before, but I thought it would be fun to mix things up this year and use 2 kinds of potatoes. I know. I’m getting crazy. It’s what I do. Especially when the holidays roll around.

This Potato & Sweet Potato Gratin is just downright awesome. And it needs to be on your Thanksgiving table this year. For reals. It’s easy, especially if you have a mandolin or one of those crafty food processor insert things that slices potatoes for you. Then it’s basically just a little layering of potatoes, cheeses, seasonings and then a garlic infused cream. Does it get any easier than that? Not really.

I’m making this next week for 30 FREAKING PEOPLE??!?!? Do you know how many potatoes that is gonna take? I’m scared just thinking about all that peeling that needs to be done. I think I’m going to force my husband to peel the potatoes since it’s his family we are spending Thanksgiving with this year. That can be his contribution. Fair enough, right?
