This delicious potato gratin is a hearty and healthy choice for a family-friendly casserole.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife (about 20 minutes). Drain; return to pot over low heat.

Step 2

Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.

Step 3

Preheat broiler.

Step 4

Transfer potatoes to a shallow 1 1/2-quart ovenproof casserole or baking dish. Combine cheese, breadcrumbs, and chives; sprinkle over potatoes. Broil 4-5 inches from heat source until cheese melts and starts to brown (3-4 minutes).

Very good and easy. It's basically mashed potatoes dressed up a bit. The chives add a lovely taste and a bit of crunch.
