Potatoes Dauphine

This is a rich and decadent dish which goes well as a side for almost any dinner party meal. Make it and impress all your friends.


  • a small amount of butter

  • 10 medium sized potatoes, thinly sliced

  • 3 onions, thinly sliced

  • 100g Parmesan cheese, finely grated and split into thirds

  • 1/2 pint single cream

  • 1/2 pint vegetable stock (or water and stock cube)



  1. Pre-heat an oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Use the small bit of butter to grease a large ovenproof dish.

  3. Layer 1/3 of the potatoes in the dish.

  4. Cover the potatoes with a layer of 1/3 of the onion.

  5. Sprinkly 1/3 of the cheese over the potatoes and onions.

  6. Repeat for the remaining potatoes and onions. Don't worry if it's not exact, it doesn't have to be. Leave the last 1/3 of cheese off.

  7. Mix the cream and stock in a jug until well mixed.

  8. Pour the cream and stock mix over the potatoes and sprinkle the last of the cheese over the top.

  9. Bake in the oven for 60 minutes.

Serves 4 as a side dish.
