This potato gratin is a classic comfort food. The thinly-sliced, shingled potatoes are meltingly tender, and while there’s certainly plenty of rich and creamy cheese sauce, it’s not so much that it drowns the potatoes. Uncovering the casserole for the final 30 minutes of baking yields a crunchy, cheesy, salty top layer that’s incredibly addictive. Using two types of cheese is also key to this dish: the sharp Cheddar cheese compliments the saltiness of the Parmesan. Serve this casserole as a holiday side dish, or enjoy some with dinner tonight, and eat leftovers for breakfast, topped with a fried egg.
Yes, those are waffle fries baked into this frittata—and now we never want to eat a frittata any other way. We tested this recipe with hash browns, too, but waffle fries totally stole the show.

Cooking the egg mixture low and slow ensures the end result is rich, custardy, and full of flavor. Plus, the oval-shaped slow cooker makes for a fun and unexpected shape, not to mention enough frittata to serve a crowd. For all you ketchup-and-egg lovers out there, we won't tell if you serve ketchup on the side.
