Potato and beetroot gratin

Potato and beetroot gratin recipe.

We love this gratin at home, but as it is rich, I keep it for special occasions. The red beets will color the whole dish, but above all will deliciously flavor it; candied, this gratin is a real killer. Even those who do not like beets will taste this dish with some pleasure. For this Potato and Beetroot Gratin, you can, depending on the flavor you want, add more or less Comté. What a pleasure to work with beetroot, I already like its first contact, barely peeled, it dyes your hands (be careful, it’s quite powerful) it’s better to wear gloves. They are best eaten cooked, steamed in a broth of water or stewed in the oven and in cream for this recipe of red beets and potatoes.
