Rustic Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

Rustic Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

After months of being away on hiatus from posting due to a number of personal matters, I am glad to be back. Mostly, I’m glad to come back to being able to doing what my husband and I love doing and that is cooking!!!

With that said, its been long overdue, but Happy Belated New Year to those who been regulars and we are back!  It’s amazing how time seems to fly by especially with day light savings going into effect today and losing one hour.  I woke up later then usual today and did a bunch of errands during the day.  We had decided to have a pot roast for dinner and felt potatoes would be perfect pairing.  Were contemplated scalloped potatoes, mash potatoes but wanted something different and made a fantastic gluten free rustic Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes. It came out amazing and it was really simple to make.

This would be great for going with various types of beef dishes to spice things up. They are excellent as leftovers warmed up in the microwave to go along eggs and bacon the next day for breakfast. The prep work doesn’t take long.  You will just need to let the oven do most of the time consuming work for you.

It has been hard for me over the course of the last year just dealing with my personal health issues because it has changed the way I eat.  Apparently I have to eat a gluten free diet and it has been extremely difficult for me to come to accept this reality.  I tried to go back to eating gluten and it hasn’t been good for me.  I cant lie to myself and I refuse to suffer so now I am on a new reinvigorating journey to discover and share with all who is interested in making simply good gluten free eating food.  We’ll also have recipes that isn’t gluten free but can be gluten free adaptable which will mostly be posted by my husband.

    Love making this for the winter holidays. When it’s cold, there’s nothing like a great hunk of meat with creamy potatoes to warm you up.

      Carolyn, thats what I had. A nice hunk of pot roast to go with this Rustic Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes. It was actually very cold that day. Still can’t believe we are still getting temperatures at freezing or below. My wife and I are looking forward to spring weather :)

    As a huge fan of potatoes and all kinds of potato dishes, I know I’d be eating half of this dish alone… 😀 Looks so good. The best part is around the edges… oh yummy!!

    I would happily dive into this dish. All that melty cheese looks great!

    I don’t really talk about it on my blog, but I eat mostly gluten free. I am not allergic to gluten and one meal a week that contains some seems to be okay for my body. I haven’t really struggled with the adjustment. I buy tons of gf oats, I also love Cup 4 Cup when I bake. The recipes turn out wonderfully! Also, fruits, vegetables, and meats are all gf. Eating out and eating processed foods is tough, but you’ll figure it out, and if you want some more help, send me an email!

    Oh, glad that you’re back to blogging, I was wondering what happened to you! This dish looks nice and creamy- I suppose it’s the lack of flour that makes it ‘gluten-free’?

    • Coral Ko — March 19th, 2014 @ 11:37 pm

      Fran. Its a good feeling to be back. However, we will be pacing ourselves. This dish is more so a little bit more on the creamy side because you are right due to lack of flour.
