Making mashed potatoes? Don’t throw away your russet peels. This gratin recipe is a great dish to make with the scraps and can be made ahead of time and frozen so that it’s ready the next time you’re in need of a potato dish. It's great with a side of salad or even tastes great served as the base of a fried egg or an eggs Benedict recipe.
