Potato gratin has a reputation for being laden with cream, butter, and cheese. To lighten things up, we used chicken broth instead of cream and took it easy on the cheese. But this dish still has crispy cheese on top and soft layers of flavorful potatoes. In our opinion, it’s as delicious as the classic.
What to buy: Graddost is a semifirm cow’s-milk cheese that is mild and creamy in flavor and great for melting. It can be found at Swedish grocery stores or online. If you can’t find it, Havarti is a good substitute.
