These starchy, high in potassium, tubular wonders have been a part of numerous comfort dishes throughout the world for centuries. Whether you love them lumpy or double baked, this versatile vegetable has accompanied many of my favorite food memories. This gorgeous Red Bliss Potato and Onion Au Gratin is a deliciously creamy dish that showcase the simply elegancy of America’s favorite spud.
