Creamy Herb and Garlic Potatoes Au Gratin

Herb and Garlic Potatoes Au Gratin

Is there anything better than Potatoes Au Gratin? The magical combination of thinly sliced potatoes, with a cheese-flavoured white sauce that gets baked into a creamy, comforting finish with a melted, golden cheese topping, is a favourite in my home. As good as they are, I discovered an easy way to make my potatoes even better!

For this dish, I simply used Kraft Creamy Herb & Garlic Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia in place of my regular cheese. The blend of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, flavoured with herbs and garlic and a touch of Philly, added such great flavour to the potatoes! Just as importantly, it melted so beautifully into such a super, creamy sauce and let’s face it, that’s what we’re after when we make Potatoes Au Gratin. It was definitely a melt to remember!

I had a hard time keeping the family out of the kitchen when these potatoes were baking. The flavours of melting cheese and garlic filled the house as they cooked. When we finally sat down for dinner, I noticed that everyone’s fork went for the potatoes first. And I didn’t blame them a bit :) I cooked the potatoes in small, individual dishes. My daughter likes them that way and I aim to please. As she says, then everyone gets a lot of the golden, crispy potatoes edge bits.



I have long used Kraft’s shredded cheese. I love the convenience. With Kraft’s new Creamy Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philladelphia, shredded cheese has become even more useful in my kitchen, as it can make so many dishes I make even better!

Kraft Creamy Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia is available in 3 delicious flavours: Creamy Mozza, Creamy Herb and Garlic and Creamy Mexicana. To celebrate these new, great cheese blends, Kraft Canada is having a Twitter Party … and you’re invited! The “What’s Cooking Twitter Party” will be held on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. Follow Kraft at @KraftCanada and the hashtag #TouchofPhillyCheese

  1. Seriously, potatoes au gratin are one of the best foods in the world. If I could just eat them for dinner, I totally would (hey, why can’t I?!). Your recipes sounds amazing! I’ll have to look for this product at my grocery store.
