One-Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potato Gratin

One-Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potato Gratin

Hi there! Today’s recipe is a delicious and simple gratin dish all made in one pan!

What’s gratin?

According to Food52.com, gratin (also called gratinée or au gratin) is “always baked and/or broiled in a shallow dish” with a topping that is “traditionally cheese or breadcrumb.”

I like to combine breadcrumbs with shredded cheese to create a thicker topping that’s extra crunchy and cheesy. If you want, check out my recipe for Zucchini Gratin with Gruyere and Panko Breadcrumbs!

This dish combines two of my favourite vegetables: potatoes (I’m partial to baby potatoes aka creamer or new potatoes) and Brussels sprouts (I buy the small bright green ones as they are often less bitter than large ones).

I hope you enjoy this recipe for One-Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potato Gratin!

Overall, this Brussels Sprouts and Potato Gratin is:

  • Delicious: Savoury tasty flavours that work wonderfully together.
  • Full of texture: Tender sautéed vegetables baked in cream with a cheesy crunchy topping is just so good!
  • Quick and easy to make: Everything is made in one-pan! Fast clean-up too.
  • Made with simple ingredients: These ingredients are mostly pantry staples or can easily be found in most grocery stores.
  • Easy to substitute ingredients: I like the flavour of jalapeño Monterey Jack cheese for that little kick of heat, but it’s easy to substitute with other melty cheeses such as cheddar, gruyere, or mozzarella. You can also sub Panko breadcrumbs with seasoned (or not) Italian breadcrumbs if you want.
  • Perfect as a fall or winter side dish: Take advantage of Brussels sprouts when they are in season!
