  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 7. Tip cream, milk, garlic and horseradish into a large saucepan, season, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, add the potatoes, stir to stop them sticking together, then cook for 10 mins until tender.

  2. Pour the potatoes and horseradish cream into an ovenproof dish. You can do this up to a day ahead. Cover, store in the fridge, then bring back to room temp an hour before you want to bake.

Bake for the 30 mins at 190C/ 170C fan/ gas 5, (if you're cooking Roast beef & carrots with easy gravy, you can pop it on the shelf below the beef for the last 30 minutes of the beef's cooking time); then increase the temp to 220C/200C fan/ gas 7 and cook for another 30-35 mins. (Add the muffin tin for the Yorkshires when you turn the oven up.)

This turned out OK, but nothing special. I think it would have been better with more garlic and seasoning, and if the potatoes were waxy. I used maris piper and they turned to mush.

I often turn this into a main meal by flaking some smoked mackerel fillets in the layers and serving with a green salad or some simply steamed broccoli and green beans

This must be the very best recipe for dauphinois. Great even without the horseradish.

Lovely flavour with the horseradish, especially with roast beef. I paused after par-boiling the potatoes in the milk/cream mix so it was really easy to finish off in perfect time with the Yorkshire puddings, etc.

Children loved this and are disappointed if I don't cook them with a roast now. Beautiful recipe.

Could I just use milk in this recipe? Instead of the milk/cream mixture. Thanks

Thanks for your question, we're afraid you need the cream too to get the thick consistency. However, we have a healthier version using crème fraîche which you can find here:
