Martha Stewart Inspired Muffin-Pan Potato Gratin

I was looking for a new way to make potatoes because roasted and mashed do get boring when baked potatoes aren’t your thing… (I welcome all suggestions by the way) and I found these Bad Boys on the Martha Stewart website. They are the easiest recipe I’ve ever made and they were so beyond delicious as a side for an even more delicious roast beef (Prime rib!) So please do yourself a favour and make these next time you feel like having potatoes. Another favour you’d have to do yourself is to buy a food processor if you don’t already have one because they are SO USEFUL.


6 Medium sized russet potatoes (actually quite small is ideal), peeled

12 Tbsp of Heavy Cream (yumm)

Salt and pepper

Non-stick spray

A regular sized muffin pan (with 12 muffins)

Grated cheese to top

1. Slice the already peeled potatoes in the food processor.

2. Spray the muffin-pan with the non-stick spray

3. Layer two potato slices in each muffin mold.

4. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the muffin molds are full (don’t go too overboard)

6. Slowly pour 1 Tbsp of heavy cream onto each “muffin” trying to keep the cream from spilling onto the edges.

7. Top with grated cheese

8. Place in a 400-degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until crispy golden on the outside, and tender when pierced with a knife.

Bon Appétit!
