The German Potato gratin can be served as a side or a main dish together with lettuce. You can vary the cheese as you like; for this recipe I used a mix of Swiss cheese and Pepper Jack which gave it a little spicy taste. If you don’t like this use Gruyere or Cheddar. I served the potato gratin with assorted vegetable and German hamburgers which was delicious. It tastes delicious because you boil the potatoes in milk. Happy Cooking!
