Potatoes gratin

Somethin’ Stupid – Robbie Williams


Salut, salut

Friday yay holiday! I’m going to take you in my suitcase, enjoy sleeping/moving/seeing beautiful things and make delicious meals :) About that, here’s the first I want to share with you; a gratin dauphinois. A traditional French meal that I’ve been doing diffenretly my entire life until I saw this amazing recipe on the blog Jujube en cuisine => revelation. I always try to do it the day before I want to eat it because it tastes better but there’s absolutely no problem if you want to eat it the same day.


Serve 4/6 people: 1,5kg potatoes, 1 garlic clove, 50cl creme fraiche (no half fat!), 50cl milk (full-fat if you can), salt, pepper and nutmeg as you like, butter.

Prep: 30mn — Cook: 1h — Rest: overnight if you can

Preheat the oven to 180°.

Peel, clean and slice your potatoes. Don’t clean them after slicing them because it will prevent the starch to act and the potatoes to bind.

Press the garlic and put it in a saucepan with the milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Let it boil and then add the potatoes. Lower the heat and let it cook for 10 to 15mn. Be careful: stir regularly to prevent the potatoes to stick to the casserole or you’ll have the pleasure to spend your night with a sponge in your hand ^^

Pour your saucepan mix in a dish and add the creme fraiche. Add dices of butter, lower our oven tho 160° and put the dish in. It will take about 1h to cook, might need 1h30 the slower the better. You’ll know when the potatoes are ready when they’ll be soft.

All you need to do now is sit on your chair, yummy-yummy time is coming! Are you used to make this dish around here? If you have recipes, please share, I’m really interested :)

Des bisous
