Asiago & Gruyere Potato Gratin Recipe @pinch

This grown haveup version of potato gratin has the perfect flavor combination your whole family will love. The cottage cheese and half and half mixture is the liquid that cooks the potatoes. It makes the dish nice and creamy with lots of flavor from the fresh thyme and hint of cayenne. What makes this scalloped potatoes recipe special is the selection of cheeses. Gruyere and Asiago is a rich combination and makes this a truly decadent and cheesy scalloped potatoes side dish. Here is a new twist on scalloped or potato gratin. I'm a huge lover of Asiago cheese and the blend of this cheese, along with Gruyere, makes this dish so rich and creamy. It is excellent with ham or any roast. I made it for Easter with a leg of lamb, which was delicious. Enjoy! (PS) I posted this recipe at the request of an awesome cook and dear friend, Rose Mary Mogan...alias...Lady Rose.
