Hasselback Potato Gratin with Winter Herbs and Fontina
Let us introduce you to the potato dish that will steal the show at your next holiday feast: Hasselback Potato Gratin. This crispy, cheesy, über-decadent casserole is a happy mash-up of a potato gratin and accordion-cut hasselback potatoes. The trick is to thinly slice the potatoes and then arrange them vertically in the baking dish. The result is a gratin with extra crispy edges on top and creamy, cheesy potatoes below. Instead of a more classic cheese choice like gruyere, here we use a semi-soft cow’s milk cheese called fontina. It melts beautifully and has a buttery, nutty flavor with a bit of honeyed sweetness. This dish is a real winner.
