christmas eggs au gratin | Chantilly

christmas eggs au gratin

okay sooo this is (probably) my last christmas-related post (i just had soo many pictures!), but i just wanted to share this recipe with you.

these eggs au gratin are a tradition in our family. we've been making them for christmas since i can remember. of course, they're not strictly for the holidays... they're perfectly yummy any time. maybe you can even make them for the new year!

put it this way... if you like cheese and eggs, these are definitely your thing.
