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.
