I wanted to share this recipe for dauphinoise potatoes with you as they are delicious, naturally gluten free and super easy to make.

If you’ve never had a bash at making dauphinoise potatoes I recommend you do. You won’t regret it as they really are tremendous. They’re the perfect creamy potato dish to enjoy with a roast!

(serves 4)

1kg (2lb) Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes – peeled and thinly sliced (3mm approx)
300ml (½ pint) fresh double cream
300ml (½ pint) of milk – full cream or semi skimmed is fine
3 cloves of garlic – peeled, left whole
Salt and *pepper
50g (2oz) grated gruyere cheese (or mature cheddar works really well)


Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5/170C Fan.

Pour the cream and milk in a large pan.
Really quick tip: if you refill the empty cream carton with milk, it will save you having to get a jug out to measure the milk.

Add the garlic and potatoes to the pan and season with a good twist of pepper, a sprinkle of salt and gently heat, bringing to a simmer for 5 minutes.

Oven ready dauphinoise potatoes

Remove from the heat and transfer potatoes with a slotted spoon to a deep ovenproof dish (something you may use for a lasagne) and even out. Pour the milk/cream over the potatoes. Some recipes recommend taking the garlic out at this stage, I leave it in – but it’s up to you. Scatter the grated cheese over the top and add a final twist of pepper.

Bake in the oven for about 1hr until golden brown and when a knife is inserted it slips through the potatoes easily.

Dauphinoise potatoes work so well with grilled or roast meats, cold cuts and *sausages. And garden peas or any fresh greens are the perfect veg to compliment this creamy indulgent potato dish.
