So I recently decided to make one of my favourite ever side dishes, a rather indulgent one at that; potato dauphinoise. Below is my gluten free and vegetarian recipe.
It’s easily adaptable for dairy free and vegan diets too. Simply switch the cheeses and milk for dairy free alternatives.
If you’ve had it before, whether it be homemade or eaten out, you MUST give this a go. I was super happy with the end result – my boyfriend and I munched it all nearly. As for the rest of you, if you’ve never tried potato dauphinoise before, then now is your time for sure!
I would say depending on what you’ll be pairing it with, it serves 4 people (but maybe 3 depending on portion sizes). We served ours with chicken wrapped in bacon topped with Parmesan cheese, baked in the oven (for about 45/50 minutes) with leeks, onion, herbs and spices. It would also compliment steak dinners, with tender-stem broccoli.
Gluten Free Potato Dauphinoise
- 4 baking potatoes
- 250 ml double cream
- 350 ml milk
- 1 large clove of garlic
- 1/2 white onion
- 30 g Parmesan cheese
- 50 g cheddar cheese
Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees or gas mark 5. Peel and slice the potatoes into slices (about 2cm thick).
Chop the garlic and onion. Pour the milk and cream into a saucepan. Add the garlic and chopped onion.
Heat the mixture on a medium heat and as soon as you start seeing bubbles forming (it reaching boiling point), remove from heat and leave to the side - keeping it warm still.
Make your first layer of potatoes by placing the slices on the bottom of the dish. Ensuring to overlap them slightly. Pour your mixture on top and sprinkle some of the cheddar and Parmesan on top.
Repeat this step until your potato slices have run out, this recipe should make about 2-3 layers depending on the size of the dish.
Remember to put a layer of cheese on top too. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes and enjoy!
Do let me know what you think if you give this a go – I’m rather excited if you do to hear your thoughts and how it went for you! Also, if you guys have any suggestions for other dishes to pair with this potato dauphinoise recipe, let me know in the comments below.
