I have dinner parties on the mind lately. It makes sense, considering it’s officially the season of festive holiday parties and many of those are dinner parties.
Now that I have my own office space and an 8-person dining table, I can’t wait to throw my first dinner party of the holiday season! Although, does Thanksgiving count? That’s a pretty big party!
Today, I have an easy, flavorful, and beautiful spiral-y potato casserole that’s perfect for bringing to one of your soirees this holiday season!
Pre-Inspiralized, I used to always make thyme potatoes – cubed potatoes baked in the oven with onions, garlic, and thyme. They were always a hit – and they went with everything, no matter what the main course was (fish, meat, veggies, etc.)
Rosemary, garlic, and thyme are my three favorite flavors to bake potatoes with. These seasonings really bring out the buttery flavor of potatoes, IMHO.
These potatoes are on a new level, baked with rich gruyere cheese and a dusting of Parmesan for an extra savory kick. AND, they’re beautiful – using Blade A on the Inspiralizer to make spirals, the potatoes are adorably curly.
The key to this dish is the onion-thyme mixture that it’s baked with – it elevates the flavor of the potatoes and makes your dinner guests wondering, “How’d she do it?!”
Potatoes are underrated, I think – most are just prepared in cubes or slices. If you bring this casserole dish to a dinner party, your friends will be thankful – and you won’t be tempted to grab that creamy, buttery potato gratin across the table.
Tell me – what’s your favorite dish to bring to a dinner party? Maybe I can re-create it using the Inspiralizer!
