Ingredients

  • 500ml double cream
  • 500ml milk
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 8 large King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes
  • 100g grated gruyère cheese (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5.

  • STEP 2

    Tip 500ml double cream, 500ml milk and 3 garlic cloves into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer.

  • STEP 3

    Slice 8 large potatoes very finely, about 3-4mm, add them to the cream and simmer for 3 mins until just cooked.

  • STEP 4

    Gently stir to separate the potato and stop it sinking and catching on the bottom of the pan.

  • STEP 5

    Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place in a wide shallow ovenproof dish so that they are about 5cm in depth.

  • STEP 6

    Pour over the garlic infused cream (discarding the garlic) – just enough to seep through the layers and leave a little moisture on the surface.

  • STEP 7

    Scatter over 100g grated gruyère 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.
