I love watching The Next Food Network Star. The competitions are interesting to me, and I like to watch all the personalities come out. This year, from the beginning I was rooting for Melissa d'Arabian, and last week, SHE WON!!! She's a mom, not a chef. And although chefs are great (I love Iron Chef America), I can relate to another mom who's just trying to get it all done. So the recipe this week comes from Melissa!
5-Minute Individual Potato Gratins
- Vegetable spray
- 2 large russet potatoes, roughly peeled and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
- 2 green onions, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Spray 8 muffin tins with vegetable spray. Layer potato slices, cheese, and onions into each muffin cup. Season with salt and pepper and top each gratin with 1 or 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Cover with foil and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, removing the foil halfway through cooking time. Invert gratins onto plate and serve.
