Is it time for new years resolutions yet? Not quite! I’ve still got a few hours to live it up and indulge in some decadent dishes. (although if you subscribe to my feed, you’re probably getting this bright and early on Jan 1st… but I’m okay with it! It’s also really good for a hangover – all those potatoes will help you get back into a semi coherent place
I’ve made plenty gratins before. I’ve used regular russet potatoes, I’ve used russet and sweet potatoes and I’ve mixed up the cheese to make things extra fancy and fun. But I’ve never made one with pesto, goat cheese and kefir before and it was decadent to say the least. Decadent as in super delicious, not crazy heavy as you might think. It won over everyone that was here for dinner 2 nights ago and it’s for sure going to have to be made again!
It also worked out perfectly because I had 2 partially used bottles of GVO Kefir sitting in the fridge. Does that ever happen to you? I always grab a bottle when I’m at the market and then all of a sudden I end up having a few 1/2 used bottles on hand and then I need to use it all up. Well problem solved on my end… mix some of the GVO kefir with some heavy cream and you get a little bit tart liquid that you can use for the gratin. Genius.
