Reviews for Rosemary Au Gratin Potatoes
"Very good recipe. A nice change up to the traditional au gratin potatoes."
"I served this at Christmastime and no one was impressed. I brought most of it home and am using it in soup!!!"
"I would give this recipe 4 1/2 stars if I could. Very tasty but needs a slight umph. Maybe a little heavier on the spices next time or a very mild white cheese, gouda perhaps?"
"Have made this many times for holidays and company, and sometimes just because it is so very good. Everyone loves it and it turns out perfect every single time."
"First time my gratin turned out creamy and flavoful. Have never done it before with a white sauce base but it worked out amazingly well. The rosemary and garlic were perfect compliments to this dish. This will forever be my go-to gratin recipe"
"This was amazing! Made it for company and served it with pork roast and it was delicious. Not too goopy creamy like some scalloped potatoes. Delish. The rosemary wasn't overwhelming, just really a nice flavour overall. I must say that I added more salt, pepper and garlic !"
"I have made this recipe several times and it is incredibly delicious. I usually change the half-and-half cream to regular milk and you can not tell the difference. It does take quite a bit longer than 45 minutes to cook....usually about 20-30 minutes longer."
"These potatoes taste luxurious! Even the kids request that I make them again. I left the peels on the potatoes to save time and I think it's just as good."
"This is a holiday favorite at our house. I don't make it often because of the time involved. But my family always requests it for our holiday meal instead of stuffing."
