Alsatian Gratin of Roots (Lacto)


I wanted to share a recipe which I have been making this winter for my family. It is a good cold weather dish. It makes enough for a crowd my family (2 adults and 3 teens) only eat about half. This can be made ahead and chilled until ready to use.

3 large onions
finely chopped
1 pound carrots
about 4 large, chopped
3 cups vegetable stock
or beef or chicken stock
3 pounds potatoes
about 6 large
1 pound rutabaga (swede)
(2 medium)
½ cup parsley leaves
minced fresh
1 x nutmeg
to taste
¾ cup jarlsberg cheese


In a 5 to 6 quart pan (I used a small roaster) cook onions and carrots in ½ cup of broth until softened. Add to this the parsley.

Peel and thinly slice the potatoes and rutabagas. Arrange half of the potato/rutabaga combo in the bottom of the pan (I sprayed with cooking spray first).

Top with half the onion/carrot mixture. Repeat with the other half of the ingredients. Over the top, pour the rest of the broth.

Cover and bake for 1½ hours in a 425 degree oven. Top with cheese and sprinkle with nutmeg. Broil until cheese is browned.
