Sweet Corn and Potato Gratin
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + standing
I found this recipe to be bland and would not make again.
Three stars are for the way it is without tweaks. Panko lacks flavor, so I use town house or club crackers instead. I added some parmesan cheese to boost the flavor. Five stars after tweaks. Using delmonte canned sliced potatoes works well because they hold their shape and firmness. They also hold up very well in a German potato salad.
I think I might add some cheese next time. Make sure your potatoes are cooked!
After reading the reviews I added another small step to the recipe. I cooked the potato slices in water till barely tender while I made the sauce. Drained the potatoes and then lightly mixed all the ingredients except the panko which i didn't have, so I used Ritz crackers. No crunchy potatoes and creamy. Adults and grandkids ate it up. I'm going to triple the recipe for a church potluck.
My husband really enjoyed this dish, citing that he liked it better than the normal cheesy potato dishes usually served for holidays. I thought it was decent and will probably make it again. One tip: don't skimp on the potato boiling time! We have slightly crunchy potatoes as I was concerned there wasn't enough moisture in the dish... whoops.
Great side dish. The only thing I would change next time is to add an extra can of cream corn and reduce the plain corn by one cup. We would like it a bit creamier.
This is amazing! My family loved it and demanded it become a regular weekend side.
