Black Garlic Standing Potato Gratin

Whether they’re mashed, scalloped, fried, or baked, potatoes will always have a special place in my heart and at the holiday table. This casserole does them justice with a show-stopping presentation and a flavor profile that’ll have your guests scrambling to discover the secret ingredient. The answer? Black garlic. If you’ve never had black garlic before, its sweetness and balsamic quality will delight. The flavor is mellow and caramel, but remains decidedly garlic, the best of both worlds. With the accent of savory and powerhouse cheeses like parmesan and gruyere, and a beautiful starchy potato canvas, this dish is a masterpiece. The assembly is easy and forgiving so dig in and enjoy.

We first found this recipe in the Food Lab by inspired chef and recent Seattle transplant J-Kenji Lopez. His method of cooking the potatoes hassle back style is genius. You might be thinking the recipe too rich (blasphemy!), but it’s surprisingly not too heavy. All the same, we have used oat milk as a substitute when counting calories and the results were delicious in that version too.Blog Button Footer Savory

    Your ingredient list includes 2 TBLS BUTTER, yet nowhere in the procedure do you mention butter. Might want to revise recipe.

    Would using waxy potatoes like red or Yukon gold work the same…?
