Pommes Dauphinoise

A delicious potato dish to accompany special occasion meals.  Cooked with cream and garlic and then finished off with cheese in the oven, this potato dish will wow your diners.

For 2-3 portions this is what you'll need; 3 medium to large potatoes, 2 cloves garlic crushed, 150 ml double cream, 100 ml milk, 50 g grated cheese (cheddar/emmental), salt & pepper to season.

1)  thinly slice the potatoes (peel them first if you wish, but not necessary)

2)  put the sliced potato in a pan with the cream, garlic and seasoning and gently bring to the boil.  Allow to simmer for approx 10 minutes.

3)  remove from the heat and layer the potato in an ovenproof dish.  Pour on the cooking juice to just come to the top of the potato and cover with grated cheese.

4)  place the dish in a pre-heated oven to 180C and cook for approx 25 minutes.  The cheese will brown.  Check the potato is cooked by sticking with a small knife/skewer.
