Potato Summer Squash Gratin

Potato & Summer Squash Gratin

Although the calendar says September, my weekly CSA share is still bursting with summer goodies (thank goodness, because I am a 100% summer girl and start to get a bit depressed when the calendar flips over from August.) Anyway, along with the abundant tomatoes and green peppers, I have loads of potatoes and summer squash on hand each week. A quick Google recipe search landed me on one of my favorite food blogs, The Kitchn, and this gem: Potato, Squash & Goat Cheese Gratin. A gratin is a French dish that’s usually baked with cheese, eggs and topped with browned crust – it’s a terrific way to get some veggies into your day, especially ones you may not think you like because cheese + oven roasting sure makes those vegetables taste divine.

Simple ingredients = delicious side dish or my case, a vegetarian family dinner two nights in a row. I’ve made this gratin twice already – swapping in zucchini and different cheeses (like ricotta or Asiago) and skim milk instead of whole. For cutting the potatoes and squash super thin, it helps if you have a mandoline (frankly, I’m still a bit scared of them) but my trusty chef’s knife and a little patience still did the trick.
