I guess you could say that this potato mushroom and onion skillet recipe is really just a potato gratin recipe.

You might be rightΒ but I’ve made it with only the very minimal amount of butter and no cream, so it’s not quite a gratin.

However, its definitely still as delicious as a gratin, just without all the excess calories!

So I decided not to call it a gratin because that would then make it just another gratin recipe, if you get what I mean? πŸ™‚

Conjuring up this recipe gave me an excellent opportunity to practice with my new skillet pan that I got for Christmas.

Last year it was the spiralizer which gave you all these delicious spiralizer recipes.

This year, it’s this exciting new piece of kitchenware that will undoubtedly have an equal number of intriguing recipes coming your way!

Oh, and I’m certainly not done with spiralizer recipes yet either. Standby for a few more of those as the year goes on!

You know folks, it’s recipes like this potato mushroom and onion skillet that mean I can get home from work, cook them from fresh and still have an hour to myself before it’s time for bed!

Plus, if there’s any left over then I can freeze it for those nights I’m too late home to cook anything. It’s quickly and easily re-heated in the oven or microwave.

The thing that’s been taking up a lot of my time at the moment is the re-writing of all of the recipes.

The re-writing of the recipes became necessary because of the “Easy Recipe” card code being out of date and not up to google standards. That meant my recipes weren’t being optimised to show up as high as possible in google search. So I’ve gradually been moving them over to the new WP Recipe Maker card.

I’ve got just under 100 recipes out of a total of nearly 250 to re-write now. That’s not bad going since I mentioned it three months ago in the brussels sprout pesto with spiralized sweet potato recipe.

So I guess in another 3 months I should be there. πŸ˜†

Not only that, I’ve been updating a lot of old recipe posts with new photographs too. Like these one’s :-

Skinny Coconut and Vanilla Muffins

and this one

Beef Curry Casserole

Anyway, anyway there’s just one last recipe, a new easy strawberry vanilla overnight oats breakfast recipe I’ve to being to you next week before Lady Lynne and I head off on our holidays. We’re both seriously looking forward to some “down time” and relaxing time together, away from it all.

Hope you can join me next Thursday for that recipe!

  1. I usually stay away from gratins as the milk messes with me – but this “gratin without any cream” is my kinda “gratin” πŸ™‚ Neil, this sounds so delicious and between my daughter and I, am not sure I’d have any leftovers to freeze up!
    Regarding your recipe migration, can WP Recipe Maker not migrate your Easy Recipes over automatically?
    If not, good luck – what a crazy long ordeal – but no doubt you will get it done and done well!
    Looking forward to your next recipe and yay for an upcoming getaway vacay – I cannot wait to see pictures and read all about it in the upcoming weeks!

      Hi Shashi, yeah WP Recipe Makes does migrate Easy Recipes over automatically, you’re right.

      But me being me, and also after the feedback from the SEO audit I had done last year, decided to go through each individual recipe and optimise them accordingly. I know, I’m mad! Ha ha!

      So can’t wait until our vacation. Just over a week to go and yes I do hope to get plenty of pictures.

      Thanks again for taking the time to comment Shashi and take care! πŸ™‚

  2. I love this. Totally adding it to the list of recipes that I really should make but lets be honest I never will… but maybe I will if I decide to get fancy!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ha ha ha, I love your honesty Susie.

      I too have a bajillion recipes I’d love to make but know that I will never have the time to do so.

      Oh well, they say it’s the thought that counts don’t they? πŸ˜‰

  3. O like scalloped potatoes, how cozy! But when are potatoes not cozy πŸ˜‰

  4. I must admit-we hate onions in our house. With a passion. But this recipe sounds like a perfect vegetarian addition to the regimen…do you suppose I could replace the onion with a sliced fennel bulb? Slightly different flavor, but similar result?

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Jamie, adding a sliced fennel bulb sounds intriguing!

      I’d love it if you tried it and then commented back here for the benefit of everyone? πŸ™‚

      Thanks too for taking the time to comment.

  5. Ah hah! Thetre are your potatoes! They look delicious. I love the hint of crispiness on top. So sorry about you having to rewrite your recipes. What a chore!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Jeff. I think the only real chore about having to re-write my recipes is having to re-read stuff I wrote up to three years ago that sometimes makes me want to gag. Ha ha! πŸ™‚
