Smoked trout and baby potato gratin

Baby potatoes are way less starchy than old potatoes, they cook faster and feel lighter! This makes them ideal for a fast dinner in spring, when you need something light and easy to go with your protein and choice of healthy fat. If you still think potatoes will make you gain fat, consider how active you are and how many carbohydrates you had during the day. If you had a fairly active day and you didn't overdo bread or rice, you should be able to squeeze 1 or 2 baby potatoes on your dinner plate without any negative consequences. After all, it's calories that count most, right? Just make sure you watch the portion sizes since recipes like this tend to taste too good for just one serving .

To make 3 servings, you need:

3 large baby potatoes (about 8 oz total)
4 oz smoked trout
2 oz heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
rosemary needles
2 tbsp butter

Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a bowl, mix the grated potatoes, chopped trout, salt, pepper and heavy cream. Add the rosemary needles (about 10-15) and stir. Separate the mixture between three individual serving size baking gratin dishes and bake for 30 minutes. Before taking out of the oven, place some butter on top to melt and grill for 60 seconds.

Wonder how many calories in each of these? Just about 250!
