We are in the home stretch my friends! Was it not just Thanksgiving? Do I not say this every year?
Whether you’re serving ham or turkey, roasting a chicken or prime rib (<— me). Or maybe you’re making a fancy meal or something casual, these cheesy gruyere potatoes are IT!! So versatile and cheesy, yet so simple and incredibly delicious.
I made a glazed ham a few weekends ago and to go with it, I whipped up these gloriously cheesy potatoes. Similar to my original recipe, yet I used buttery Yukon gold potatoes and threw in some shallots, thyme and a whole lot of gruyere.
These potatoes are epic and will be perfect with your holiday dinner or potluck.
To Make This Cheesy Gruyere Potatoes Recipe You Will Need:
- yukon gold potatoes
- diced shallots
- fresh garlic
- fresh thyme
- sour cream
- gruyere cheese
Start by roughly peeling 3 pounds of Yukon gold potatoes. Next, cut them into bite-size pieces and add them to a large pot of cool water, covering them by an inch or two. Then cover and bring to a boil. And then reduce to a simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until just fork tender.
Next, drain the potatoes and place in a large bowl to cool slightly.
Meanwhile grate 8 ounces of gruyere cheese and set off to the side.
Then in a medium skillet, melt 4 tablespoons of butter, add in 3/4 cup of diced shallot and a pinch of kosher salt.
Once the shallot is soft and translucent, add in a minced clove of garlic and 1 teaspoon chopped thyme and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Then stir in 1/4 cup of flour and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Next, while stirring, pour in 1/2 cup of whole milk and 1/2 cup of low-sodium chicken broth.
Then stir until the sauce has thickened.
Lastly, stir in 1 cup of sour cream.
Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
Next pour the shallot-thyme sauce in with the potatoes and then add in ALL of that wonderful shredded gruyere cheese.
Toss to combine.
Spray a oven-safe casserole with olive oil spray and spread the cheesy gruyere potato mixture into the prepared dish. Bake the casserole in a preheated 350° for 45 to 60 minutes or until the cheesy gruyere potatoes are bubbling and golden brown.
I live for those golden brown crispy edges. You know I do!
