Have you ever go through a cooking book and all set to try some recipes but ended up making your own recipe? I found this really simple potato gratin recipe in my mum’s Marry Berry’s Complete Cookbook when I was looking for some pasta cream recipe. There are two dishes called Gratin Dauphinois and Potatoes Lyonnaise originally, but I ended up putting those two into one dish. Ce repas est delicieux!
So here is the recipe if you wanna try it out.
1 spoon of butter, extra for greasing
1kg potatoes, thinly sliced
1 large onion, sliced
1 can of button mushroom, sliced
1 box of thicken cream
Salt, black pepper and some oregano
1. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the onion and cook until the onion are softened but not colored. Set aside.
2. Lightly butter a shallow gratin dish.
3. Layer the potatoes slightly overlapping and season them with salt, black pepper and oregano.
4. Sprinkle with onion, mushroom and grated cheese. Pour some of the cream on top of the layer.
5. Continue layering the potatoes, seasoning, onion, mushroom and cream.
6. Finish with a neat layer of potatoes and cheese on top of it.
7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190oC for 1 hour (or until the potatoes are tender and the topping is golden brown). Serve hot.
You can also add some other vegetables like tomato, spinach and eggplant if you like~
So that’s it. Let me know if you have tried it!
p/s: Ce repas est delicieux! means 'this food is delicious' in French~
