How To Prepare Buffalo Potato Gratin

🌿 First, mix together the cream, spices, chives, buffalo and grated parmesan.

🥔 Secondly, slice the potatoes pretty thinly but not paper thin so they hold their shape.

🧈 Then, butter a baking dish and layer the potatoes as shown in the video.

🧀 Drizzle the cream over them with a bit of buffalo sauce. Then, add the gruyere.

🔥 Bake covered in foil at 400F for 45 minutes (in the middle rack).

⏱ Remove foil. Then, bake uncovered for 15-20 more minutes.

🌟 Lastly, top with chives, black pepper and parmesan.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use any cheese of your choice instead of gruyere.
  2. I topped mine with chives, but you can top with your favorite herbs or whichever ones you have on hand.
