My Easter dinner menu is now a 2-year tradition: lamb, minted peas, crescent rolls, and these au gratin potatoes. Apparently the other part of this tradition is that I don’t make these recipes except on Easter (although the crescent rolls need to make it back into regular rotation, I think).
These au gratin potatoes are creamy and cheesy, with a delicious crunchy panko topping. I like to use Yukon Gold potatoes, because those are my favorite, but you could also use red potatoes if that’s what you have on hand. I would also recommend shredding your own cheese, because it will melt better into the sauce. Enjoy!
Happy Easter! This year, I decided to stick with a good thing and repeat last year’s dinner menu: roasted leg of lamb, au gratin potatoes, minted peas, and crescent rolls.
These minted peas are a great (and super easy) way to dress up frozen peas, and the lemon zest and fresh mint give the peas a great spring-y flavor. But I should note that it isn’t the healthiest recipe — after all, there’s heavy cream in it. Hence, it’s once-a-year appearance on my menu at Easter. Give it a try at your next holiday meal!
Happy Thanksgiving! Michael and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend, and one of the highlights was this delicious turkey roulade that I made for Thanksgiving dinner.
Since I was only making dinner for the two of us, I decided to try something different — this turkey roulade, which I stuffed with my family’s traditional stuffing recipe. The preparation is a little more detailed than simply roasting a turkey, but don’t be intimidated by the long instructions — it only takes an hour to roast. I already have another turkey breast in the freezer, so I’ll definitely be making this one again.
