Impending spoilage is the mother of inventions. I buy goat cheese at Sam’s Club because I can get a pound there for only a dollar or so more than the little 4 oz. packages at the local grocery store. But I often don’t get through it fast enough before it starts to spoil. One of my Twitter pals suggested au gratin potatoes, and it was a genius suggestion. SO GOOD.

- 4 oz goat cheese
- 1.25 cups skim milk
- 3 potatoes sliced
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Thin slice your potatoes. This is one of those locations when a mandolin slicer is worth its weight in Yukon golds.
3. Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
4. Layer potatoes, overlapping like shingles across the bottom of the dish.
5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
6. Crumble up a third of the goat cheese.
7. Repeat with remaining layers, reserving the last third of the cheese.
8. Carefully pour the milk in at the edge until it reaches the bottom of the top layer of potatoes.
9. Bake for 60 minutes.
10. During the last 15 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the remaining goat cheese on.
