“Is anything better than a decadent potato gratin?” Martha Stewart asked in a February 22nd post on her Instagram account. We’d be inclined to say “why no, we cannot think of anything better than a decadent potato gratin.” However, it turns out this was a bit of a trick question because what Stewart had in mind was a decadent potato gratin made even more decadent with the addition of asparagus and prosciutto.
Stewart’s recipe for Asparagus and Potato Gratin also makes use of goat cheese and Pecorino Romano, which, together, replace the Gruyère and mozzarella that many of us have come to associate with classic potatoes au gratin (via Martha Stewart). “The sweet, grassy undertones of goat cheese and sharp Pecorino Romano compliment this side-turned-dinner dish beautifully and will have the whole family asking for seconds,” she explained on Instagram. But truth be told, she had us at asparagus and prosciutto.
