My recipe of the day is for a potato and apple gratin for #HolidaySideDishes week. We've posted several times already as a group and today is the final day. You can see today's recipe selection below and also additional recipes earlier in the week for Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese as well as Creamed Spinach. Each day will also include a different roundup so check them both for the full selection.

What are Gratins?

Gratins as a rule are very popular at the holidays. These are French casseroles which layer vegetables and or fruits and cover them with something that will brown nicely, such as cheese or crumbs. Most people are family with Potatoes au gratin.

Cuisine of the French Alps

This version adds in apples for a very harvest feel. Apples pair gorgeously with potatoes, especially when the right kinds of cheeses are used. For this type of dish, I like using something Alpine- and have used a blend here of Gruyere, which is a type of Swiss, Butterkase and Raclette.

Pairings

I have added a little bit of caramelized onion as well, for that extra bit of flavor. I cook with this combination often, especially if I am serving pork. This gratin is amazing with a pork loin roast, a baked ham, or even something as pedestrian as pan fried pork chops.

A Place at the Holiday Table

As part of a Thanksgiving spread, it extends the meal outwards from the usual turkey and stuffing, to provide options for those families who also bake a ham, or wish to provide something that can be a side dish yet double as a vegetarian entree.
