Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Tip the cream, milk and garlic into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Slice the potatoes very finely, about 3-4mm, add them to the cream and simmer for 3 mins until just cooked. Gently stir to separate the potato and stop it sinking and catching on the bottom of the pan.
  2. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place in a wide shallow ovenproof dish so that they are about 5cm in depth. Pour over the garlic infused cream (discarding the garlic) – just enough to seep through the layers and leave a little moisture on the surface. Scatter over the cheese, if using, then bake for 30 mins until the potatoes are soft and browned – increase the heat for 5 mins if not brown enough.

I added very thinly sliced chorizo and onion, both into the milk for the duration of the recipe. this completly changes the flavour but it tastes amazing! try it, and let me know what you think!

Made these for the first time on Saturday as a treat for my partner to go with rump steak. I also seasoned and added a sprinkle of gruyere cheese between layers.
As for the slicing, I got my fella to do it! =]

These are extra special and I have promised to make them again for valentine's day. Roll on 14th Feb!

This was yummy. I did change it a little. Between each layer of potatoes I added a little of the grated cheese and also seasoned. Everyone loved it. Would certainly cook again.

super easy and delicious. i added a pinch of mustard powder and a sprinkle of nutmeg over the top when making to go on the christmas lunch.
delicious and not remotely stressful even on top of all the other things cooking - though wouldn't have the patience to slice by hand - used the processor instead!

Yummy. Definately add nutmeg, and seasons all of the layers. I also add a little butter.

Great recipe, really easy to cook.

I made this as the receipe said with the cheese added and found it absolutely delicious, I served it with turkey, stuffing and fresh vegetables, and of course a glass of red wine which complemented the dish perfectly, all my family loved it, there was plenty to go round. I have been asked to print off the receipe for a few people and will certainly be making this dish again.

Used the receipe as written with the cheese and it was delicious with the shoulder of lamb with red wine sauce (also Good Food) and we all loved it and it cooked whilst the meat was resting.

Nutmeg in it was delious! I also added a coarsely chopped onion to the milk and discarded it after the potatoes were done. Really nice and easy with a roast-just threw it in the oven while the roast was resting.
