I don't know why you couldn't just use the same gratin recipe as for other kinds of potatoes.

The only thing I can think of is that crumbled bacon goes so very nicely with the reds.

I thought about that too.... I know reds tend to be a little sweeter than normal baking potatoes so I was not sure how that would impact the recipe if any. Maybe that is the route to take! Thanks mudbug!

Red potatoes are waxier than baking potatoes, so they don't perform the same way in a gratin or au gratin dish.

But you still can use them.
