Quick recipe: Potato Dauphinoise

potato dauphinoise

I’ve been treating myself to this pre-prepared potato dauphinoise from the local supermarche but wanted to have a go myself. I looked up many recipes and there seemed top be complete disagreement as to the ingredients so I made a kind of hybrid between them all and in turned up amazingly close to the pre-prepared version without the additives etc and a tad less garlic.

Method:

Peel 4-5 medium sized potato (variety suitable for baking preferred)
Slice thinly approx 4-5mm slices and layer in a buttered baking tray
Put 1x cup of milk and 1 x cup of cream in a pan and bring to simmer
Add to taste with garlic butter
Add nutmeg as required

Optional: sliced onion
Pour simmered mixture over the sliced pots
Cook at Gas Mark 7 or 220 C for 30 mins
Optional: Add a thin layer of grated cheese
This recipe stores well in a chilled fridge and is happy to be reheated.I will have to try cooking this using a microwave oven only and finishing off under a grill as I see no reason why this ovenless method wouldn’t work.

DauphinoiseUPDATE: Recipe does indeed work fine if microwaved at a medium power setting (power 6 for my Microwave for 6-8 mins) followed by a sprinkling of grated cheese under a grill or just left to felt on top.
