Our family is dividing the holiday feast this year between turkey - and everything else. Since my mom does a wicked turkey, we are doing... everything else ha!
She said to me, let's not do mashed potatoes.
My first thought was *Gasp! But okay, scalloped potatoes it is.
I always think of them as a difficult dish, time consuming and overall pain in the ass. But I found this recipe strategy in a great cookbook 'Canel House: Cook Something' by Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer. I used this concept, with our own spin on it.
It felt easy and achievable, but still time consuming.- you'll want to plan ahead a little. Low and slow here, and it didn't disappoint.
We incorporated our Sunshine Blend; full of earthy turmeric and subtle hints of lemongrass and apple cider vinegar. It's a powerhouse of blend that's both light and complex. Yes, it was perfect.
We used gruyere cheese to seal the deal for the cheesy, gooey factor - highly recommend. Topped off with a little green onion to bring on some colour for ultimate presentation.
