This gratin is different to others I've tried. It's more like a puree but a very tasty one!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the broccoli until al dente, then refresh under cold water so that it stays green.
  2. Peel the potatoes and boil in salted water until ready for mashing.
  3. Chop the broccoli, stems included, in a processor.
  4. Mash together the first six ingredients, then spoon into a large, ovenproof buttered bowl.
  5. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top, dot with a little extra butter and bake at 175 C or 350 F for 30 minutes.

What a great side dish! I made half the recipe for the two of us and I felt the proportion of potatoes and broccoli were perfect. Instead of steaming the broccoli, I toasted them in the oven with a litte water on the bottom of the baking dish (500F for 5-7 minutes) and they came out bright green and perfect texture. Served with baked chicken and a tossed salad, this made a wonderful meal. Thanks Sackville Girl!

Oh Friedel! This was soooo good! Just the right blend of broccoli for the amount of potatoes. I made half the recipe because there are only two of us now, but it still came out just fine. I wouldn't change a thing. A great side dish with our breaded baked chicken breasts. Thank you for this recipe.
