If you are bored with mashed potatoes, wait until you bite into this cheesy gratin! It has paper-thin potato slices that are smothered in a heavenly sauce of butter, cream, spices, and melted Gruyere cheese. The little pinch of nutmeg gives the dish a subtle sweetness. It develops a crunchy crust in the oven that is divine. This gratin is warm and satisfying and would pair well with any meat dish.

ChefBear Complete Meals - butterhorn rolls

butterhorn rolls

Instead of buying frozen rolls for Easter dinner, why not make some from scratch? These light, buttery rolls are easy to make, and look beautiful in a serving basket. After you make the quick yeast dough and let it rise, roll individual triangles into crescent shapes. They puff up gorgeously in the oven, with a light brown crust. Serve these fluffy rolls with plenty of creamy butter.
