The holidays are almost here! Are you entertaining this year? We are not hosting
Christmas Eve or Christmas Day this year but we always bring a dish to wherever we

go on each day- typically something that is a little bit lightened up, Amanda-style!

We do host a Christmas breakfast though for anyone who wants to come and see the
kiddos open their presents. I love this because it is one of the happiest mornings of the
year and I love cooking breakfast dishes as well. We are also hosting a little NYE

party at our house too so that will be super fun!

I love anything hasselback and love making stacked recipes so I had to make a cheesy
potato gratin just in time for the holidays. I lightened it up and used both sweet
potatoes and regular potatoes for a beautiful dish. I used white whole-wheat flour for
thickening and milk instead of half-and-half. Trust me, you can't tell! Adalyn and I
were snacking on this through the afternoon just peeling off one piece at a time- so, so
tasty! I'm making this for Christmas.

I am so happy with how it turned out! My whole family loved this and it was so
awesome how the potatoes were completely soft throughout yet a little crisp on the
top along with the toasted cheese. I would totally bring this to a holiday gathering.
Anything that has potatoes + cheese always disappears super quickly at a gathering as

I remember from years in the past.

You will love this dish that is a lot simpler than it looks. You just have to slice the
potatoes really thin- a mandoline slicer works best but if you have good knife skills
and can cut super thin slices, that can work as well. For this recipe, I actually hand
sliced them and they were perfect. Then, you load it up with a cheesy sauce that
everyone will love. I used shredded parmesan cheese and an Italian blend cheese but

feel free to use whatever you like. Cheddar would work great as well.
