Potato Peel Gratin

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.

  • 1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon white pepper

  • 1/2 Cup shredded Gouda or Cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped chives

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and cream together. In another large bowl, toss together the potato skins, red onion, salt, pepper, ½ the Parmesan, the Cheddar or Gouda, and the chives.
