Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 160C/ conventional 180C/gas 4. Boil the whole potatoes in a large pan for about 15-20 minutes until they are cooked – the timing will depend on their size. Drain and leave to cool, then peel off the skins and cut the potatoes into 5mm thick slices.
  2. Put the butter and garlic in the pan the potatoes were boiled in, season and melt over a low heat. Add the potato slices and toss until just coated –but don’t let them fry. (You can prepare up to this stage the day before and keep covered in a cool place.)
  3. Spread the potatoes out in a deep 28 x 22cm ovenproof dish and pour on the milk and cream. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes until golden and the potatoes are just beginning to crisp.

Absolutely delicious - a firm favourite. I have made it many times. I often just use all milk for the liquid, to reduce the calories, and find this is just as good.

This was a huge hit and will most definitely be making again. So simple to make and very tasty. I served it as an accompaniment to roast chicken with couscous & pine nut stuffing (also a bbc goodfood recipe). I can’t wait to make it again for my next dinner party :)

Made this as part of last year's New Year buffet. It is truly delicious and I'll be making it again this year. I also think it beats dauphinoise potatoes by a mile! I prepared the entire dish the night before so all I had to do 24hrs later was pop it in the oven.

Im going to be making this at the weekend, i'll be serving it with 'Roast Whole Fish with salsa Romesco' (can also be found on this site. Im going to change the potatoes slightly by adding Wilted Chard (spinach) as we have Loads growing and Par cooked Broccoli. This would also add some nice colour with the fish. And probably Garlic Bread.

I made this for me and my boyfriend, as avid cheese lovers I put lots of cheese in the dish! It was so tasty, I wouldn't change this in any way shape or form.

My hsband and I loved this recipe. I will definately be doing again. It was much creamier than many dauphinoise recipes and so easy to do.
