Made with both sweet and white potatoes,this dish is a blend of color,taste,and texture. It's creamy,but not too heavy,and sweeter and less starchy than it would be with all white potatoes.
I'm an ole gal ; ) ~~ so I use a food processor to slice my potatoes to be thinly sliced. And if I use the Red potato in place of the White. I wash em up and leave skins on and then slice thinly.

How to Make SWEET & WHITE POTATOES AU GRATIN

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and thinly slice potatoes. In a microwave-safe dish (not plastic),sprinkle potato slices with 1/4 cup water,cover with lid or waxed paper,and microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Remove cover from bowl and allow potatoes to cool.
  3. In a saute' pan,heat olive oil over medium-high heat and add onions,garlic,red pepper. cook until slightly brown,about 5 minutes. Add thyme and flour,then whisk in milk. The flour will cause mixture to thicken.
    Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  4. In a 9"X13" baking dish,layer the potato slices like roof shingles until the pan is filled.
  5. Gently fold eggs,yogurt,salt,pepper,1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese,and 1/4 cup Sharp Cheddar cheese into the now cooled onion mixture,combining well,and then pour over layered potatoes.
  6. Top with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup Sharp Cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake in preheated 375F. oven for 45 minutes.
