Have you tried pumpkin and potato gratin before. It’s still ooey gooey and cheesy like your typical potatoes au gratin recipe but with a hint of pumpkin, perfect for the Fall season. Whether you’re making this for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just during the week it is a great twist on the traditional au gratin potatoes.

If you’re looking for a new Thanksgiving side dish, or just something to serve with dinner this might be something new!

  • It’s always good to try at least one new dish during the holidays. You never know what might become your new favorite. You might find something you’ll serve year after year. 

Adding pumpkin to pretty much any dish around this time of year is a great twist. If you love cheesy potato casserole dishes this is something else you would probably enjoy and great to serve with guests.

It’s all about layering it all so everything is well coated and it all blends together nicely with your potatoes. Top with cheese and at the end to add a bit of color you can add a bit of parsley.
