Pumpkin and potatoes au gratin are a simple, versatile and typically autumnal side dish, dedicated above all to those who love these vegetables and are always looking for new ideas and combinations. The recipe is similar to that of sandy potatoes, as a mix of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese is finally added to give crunchiness and fragrance, enhanced in our version by the sweetness of the shallots and the full and round flavor of the pumpkin. A very easy preparation to make, even in advance and reheat when necessary, perfect to accompany meat dishes and fish dishes, without overwhelming its delicate and pleasantly aromatic flavor. You can also serve pumpkin and potatoes au gratin as a main course, maybe in combination with cheeses, if you prefer, to the delight of vegetarian guests. So let’s find out how to prepare pumpkin and potatoes au gratin in the best way by following all our instructions step by step.
