Root Vegetable Gratin Recipe @pinch

A combination of fall root vegetables is what makes this gratin recipe special. It has a medley of creamy red potatoes, sweet butternut squash, and savory parsnips. Leeks add a mild onion flavor to the side dish. The creamy sauce has thyme and nutmeg. It holds the gratin together but adds another layer of flavor. Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top finishes off the medley nicely. It is a unique fall side dish that would be delicious on a holiday table too. This is such a great side dish. I didn't think I would like it at first but I made it anyway. Now it is one of the family's favorites.
