This Au Gratin Potato Recipe joins two of my favorite things, cheese and potatoes. This recipe is a huge hit a family gatherings. I usually make it for Thanksgiving, because it’s a cheap dish, and it’s fairly easy to make.

In addition, Au gratin is one of those holiday dishes that doesn’t usually have any leftovers! People may beg you for the recipe!

Choosing Recipes For Holiday Dinners

Choosing a good recipe to take to your family dinner can be a little daunting.

This recipe can be a lot of work if you don’t have a mandolin slicer. Those babies make slicing potatoes quick and easy!

However, if you want a quick and easier recipe, I’d go for deviled eggs. Everyone loves them, and my Instant pot hard boiled egg recipe makes the eggs super easy to peel!

Another easy recipe is macaroni salad. It’s not something that everyone and their grandma makes. My recipe is delicious!

Why Use Cheese Soup For This Au Gratin Potato Recipe

You “can” buy canned cheese soup. I don’t suggest that you do it though. First off, it’s gross, in my opinion. Additionally, canned cheese soup has ingredients that are on my naughty list.

Subsequently, wouldn’t you much rather be eating fresh cheese? Canned cheese, well it just lacks the taste that’s need for this Au gratin potato recipe!

Try it for yourself if you don’t believe me! Fresh is usually better, and cheese soup is really easy to make! You don’t need someone to make it for you in a factory!
