Best Gratin or Scalloped Potato Dish For Thanksgiving?

karianne | Nov 15, 2009 05:36 PM

Everything I've found on Epicurious seems....blah. I always do an alternative to mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving, usually opting for roasted potatoes, but a gratin has been requested for this year.

What I am after....

- It can incorporate something other than potatoes (certainly sweeter potato types) with the exception of fennel (the BF hates it).
- I know it's generally a rich dish but I don't want it to be incredibly greasy or overly-heavy.
- I'd love it to have some kind of kick, either using herbs or some kind of heat. Nothing overpowering, just enough to cut the blandness.

Any favorite recipes?
