Potatoes Dauphinoise

70 mins (prep 30, cooking 40)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is my favourite potato recipe of all time. It makes the perfect accompaniment to a roast or any other meat dish. Traditional recipes for this take 1 1/2 - 2 hours to cook, so I start mine off in the microwave. Some recipes are very rich, calling for all cream plus butter and cheese on the top. I've found this version - even when made with low fat ingredients - tastes wonderfully creamy but not too rich with no compromise on flavour. One of the best things about Potatoes Dauphinoise is that if there's any left over it keeps well in the fridge for several days and it reheats beautifully in the microwave (unlike roast potatoes which can taste a bit floury when reheated). I've also frozen it, defrosted it in the fridge during the day, then reheated it in the oven for dinner. Try it - I know you'll love it!
