Provided by Food Network

Yield 6 to 8 portions

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped, about 3 tablespoons
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
4 large russet potatoes, about 2 pounds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a 2 quart flame proof casserole or gratin dish.
  • Peel the potatoes and hold them in cold water until ready to proceed with the recipe.
  • Combine the garlic, cream, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Dry the potatoes fully and cut them into rounds, beginning at one end, using a mandoline. Set the blade on the mandoline to cut a thin, 1/8-inch thick, slice. Place the potato slices into the gratin dish carefully layering them in a circular fashion. Pour the seasoned cream over the potatoes and shake the dish gently to allow the cream to flow towards the bottom of the dish.
  • Place the gratin dish on the stovetop over low heat and begin to warm the contents until the cream has begun to simmer. Cook the potatoes in the seasoned cream for 5 minutes and then place the gratin dish into the oven.
  • Bake the potatoes for 45 to 60 minutes until the top has browned to a rich golden color and the cream is bubbling along the side of the dish.
  • Remove the gratin from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.


Madame Laracine's Gratin Dauphinois (Madame Laracine's Potato Gratin) image

Provided by Patricia Wells

Categories     side dish

Time 1h20m

Yield Six to eight servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

3 pounds medium-sized russet potatoes, peeled and sliced very thinly
2 cups milk
2 cups water
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
Sea salt to taste
3 bay leaves
Freshly ground nutmeg and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 cup creme fraiche or heavy cream
10 ounces Gruyere cheese, freshly grated


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with the milk and water. Add the garlic, salt and bay leaves and, with the pan partially covered, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally so that the potatoes do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring from time to time, until the potatoes are tender but not falling apart, about 10 minutes.
  • Using a large, flat strainer, transfer half the potatoes to an eight-cup gratin dish. Sprinkle with nutmeg, pepper, half the cream and half the cheese. Cover with the remaining potatoes and sprinkle again with pepper, nutmeg and the remaining cream and cheese. (Discard the milk, water and herbs in which the potatoes were cooked.)
  • Bake until the gratin is crisp and golden on top, about one hour. Serve immediately.

Julia Child's Provençal Potato Gratin image

Potatoes aren't usually associated with Provençal cooking, but every French region must have its gratin: sliced potatoes baked into a delicious mass that is the perfect side dish for roasts. The binder can be milk, broth, cream or, as in this case, the natural juices of vegetables like tomatoes and onions. With less liquid, this gratin is more foolproof than most. Anchovies give the dish a South of France funk, but you can leave them and the cheese out to make a vegan gratin.

Categories     casseroles, side dish

Time 1h30m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 to 3 onions, thinly sliced (2 heaping cups)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more for drizzling
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, seeded and cut into strips about 3/8-inch wide
1 2-ounce can anchovies packed in olive oil, drained (reserve anchovies and oil separately)
2 large cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
1 tablespoon fresh herbs, such as thyme, oregano or savory, or 1 teaspoon dried herbes de Provence
About 2 pounds thin-skinned, waxy potatoes like Yukon Gold, sliced 1/8-inch thick (6 to 7 cups)
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Gruyère


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees and place a rack at the middle level. In a large saucepan, combine onions and 2 tablespoons olive oil and stir to coat over low heat. Sprinkle lightly with salt. At a gentle simmer, cook uncovered until onions are softened and lightly golden, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often. Do not brown; lower the heat if necessary. When done, fold in tomatoes just until heated through. Set aside.
  • In a small food processor or a mortar, add the anchovies - anywhere from 6 to 12 fillets, depending on their size and your taste. Add garlic, herbs and a dozen grinds of pepper. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil (or use the oil from the anchovy can, if you like). Crush or pulse together into a chunky paste, thinning with oil as needed to make a loose, fluid mixture.
  • In a medium-size baking dish, spread a quarter of the onion-tomato mixture. On top, arrange half the potato slices, then half the anchovy mixture. Add half the remaining onion-tomato mixture. Build one more layer with remaining potato slices, anchovy mixture and onion-tomato mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top and drizzle with olive oil.
  • If the dish is very full, place on a baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake, uncovered, until potatoes are tender and have absorbed all of the juices in the bottom of the dish, 40 to 50 minutes. Test by tasting a bit of potato; it should be soft all the way through, with no raw taste. If the top is browning too fast, cover very loosely with a sheet of foil. If the top is not brown enough when the potatoes are cooked, broil briefly until deliciously glazed.
  • Serve gratin hot or warm. Can be cooled and reheated later the same day, but do not refrigerate.

Delightful potato-cream-and-gruyere side dish. VERY rich. From the Joy of Cooking cookbook. My family loves this potato dish, but we save it for very special occasions due to the richness.

Classic Bistro Style Gratin Dauphinois - French Gratin Potatoes image

This classic French potato gratin dish is world famous, and rightly so! I am quite happy to have this as a main meal, with just some crusty bread and a large mixed salad on the side. I have heard that this famous dish was created as a way of encouraging the "Dauphin" (the young prince destined to become King Henri II), to eat up his vegetables, hence the name! Maybe - it is certainly just as popular with children, as it is with adults. Try to slice the potatoes as thinly as possible for the best results. A wonderful accompaniment for all sorts of roast meats, stews, casseroles and poultry. This recipe is not strictly French, using as it does a Swiss cheese.

Categories     One Dish Meal

Time 1h45m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 9

3 lbs waxy potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (such as Desiree, Golden Wonder, Maris Piper, Idaho or King Edward)
6 ounces gruyere cheese, grated
3/4 pint double cream
fresh ground black pepper
2 -4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 ounce butter
cheese, for topping (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 300F/150C/gas mark 2.
  • Take a heavy-bottomed dish or an ovenproof gratin dish (a Le Creuset is ideal - the potatoes tend not to catch), and grease it will with some of the butter.
  • Layer the potato slices in the dish, slightly overlapping each other, seasoning lightly with the salt and pepper, and sprinkling a liberal amount of cheese on each layer.
  • Sprinkle cheese on the top of the last layer.
  • Put the double cream, garlic and sprigs of thyme in a pan and bring to them gently to the boil, then remove the thyme and pour hot cream over the potatoes.
  • Dot the top of the gratin with the remaining butter and some extra cheese if you wish, and bake for about 1 hr to 1 1/2 hrs, or until the potatoes are soft, and the top is crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve bubbling hot as a main meal or as an accompaniment.


Gratin Dauphinois image

From Ruth Reichl's Gourmet Weekly to you via my inbox, lol. Her words: This scalloped potato dish is part of our culinary repertoire, and we hope it will become part of yours too. There is something about the texture of the potatoes surrounded by creamy goodness and topped by golden brown cheese that wows people. It is perfect for a buffet supper or potluck; in our experience, it is the first thing to disappear. The technique of starting the potatoes in a saucepan of half-and-half and ending them in a buttered gratin dish comes from the masterful Jacques Pépin. Couldn't say it better myself, so I didn't. :) I did make minor tweaks to the ingredients/amounts.
