This dish tastes decadent but is much lighter than typical gratins. Topped with sautéed onions, wheat germ and sharp cheddar cheese, our potato gratin will leave you feeling quite satisfied.

Serves 6

1 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups 1 percent milk

1 large garlic clove, sliced

1/4 teaspoon salt, divided

1 tablespoon olive oil, divided

1 small onion, sliced into thin rings

1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/3 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400° F. In 2-quart pot, bring potato slices, milk, garlic and 1/8 teaspoon salt to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 5 minutes or until potatoes soften.

Lightly grease 8-inch square baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Pour potato and milk mixture into pan and bake for 45 minutes until most of the milk is absorbed and edges are slightly browned.

While potatoes are cooking, heat remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in medium skillet. Add onions and saute about 8 minutes until softened and lightly browned. Set aside until potatoes are cooked.

Stir pepper, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and wheat germ into onions. Top potatoes with onion mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Place pan back in oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and topping is lightly browned. Turn broiler on and broil potatoes for 3 to 5 minutes to finish melting the cheese and create a crispy top, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn. Remove from oven and let gratin sit for 5 minutes before serving.
