Potato gratin has a reputation for being laden with cream, butter, and cheese. To lighten things up, we used chicken broth instead of cream and took it easy on the cheese.

What to buy: Graddost is a semifirm cow’s-milk cheese that is mild and creamy in flavor and great for melting. It can be found at Swedish grocery stores or online. If you can’t find it, Havarti is a good substitute. This recipe was featured as part of our Summer Solstice menu.
