A true foodie is one who is open to eat anything and almost everything edible. One such foodie is my sister. Since childhood me and my sister has been the biggest food hogger in our family. Living in a metro for years often allows one to eat and explore new cuisines which is normally not so common at home. One of them is Gratin, which is a widespread culinary technique in which an ingredient is topped with a browned crust, often using breadcrumbs, grated cheese, egg and/or butter. Gratin originated in French cuisine and is usually prepared in a shallow dish of some kind. A gratin is baked or cooked under an overhead grill or broiler to form a golden crust on top and is traditionally served in its baking dish.
One such dish that falls under Gratin is scalloped potatoes. Finely sliced potatoes, cooked in heavy cream n milk, then layered and topped with lots of grated cheese is known as scalloped potatoes. Now i have another member at my home who always love to see colors in his food…yes, u guessed it right, its my son. So i added some corn kernels, chopped tomatoes and an egg before baking. The scalloped potatoes goes well when flavored with rosemary, but as i didn’t had it at home, i chose to season it with some chilli flakes and oregano flakes. It’s easy to make and i’m sure any kid would love to have these creamy cheesy gooey scalloped potatoes with baked eggs on top.
