Cheesy Garlic Potatoes Gratin is such a classic dish that you can really have anytime of the year. They’re so perfect with just about anything and are especially great to serve to a crowd. Whenever I make these potatoes, they’re always the first thing to disappear, so I’d say it’s a pretty good sign. If you’re still looking for a great side this for this upcoming Easter this dish is perfect, and super pretty! I love how crispy the top bits get. Enjoy! xx, Jenny
