Creamy Rosemary Potato Au Gratin is going to be the death of me one day. Because once I make them I can’t stop eating them. Because how can you go wrong with cream, cheese and potatoes. Add some rosemary, salt and pepper and you’ve got perfection!

These creamy potatoes always find a way to the dinner table on big holidays and occasions for us. Every year we complain about all the calories in this dish and then every year we find a reason to make it again.

Now by the looks of it, you might think that it’s going to take your hours to slice those potatoes, but if you have a mandolin on hand, which you absolutely should, slicing these potatoes into the perfect slices should be a matter of minutes. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it took me all of 15 minutes to put this together. The rest is just baking time, and at the end of it, you get the creamiest, most delicious potatoes you’ve ever had! I hope you give this a try and do let us know what you think in the comments section below!
