Baked Cream Potatoes

    35 minutes

    This is a wonderful way to eat potatoes. They are baked in the oven in a cream and garlic sauce. It is a great side to a simple sausage or steak dinner.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 medium potatoes
    • 300ml thickened cream
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
    • a tablespoon oil

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Cut the potatoes into quarters and lightly boil in salted water for 12 minutes until nearly cooked but still quite firm. When the potatoes have cooked, drain them well.
    3. Pour the cream in to a saucepan, add the garlic and season well with the salt and pepper. Place the saucepan on a low to medium heat.
    4. Slice the potatoes as finely as you can. Remove the cream from the heat as soon as it starts to boil.
    5. Smear some oil round an oven proof dish. Arrange half the potatoes in the base of the dish. Add half of the cream. Arrange the remaining sliced potatoes as a second layer then pour over the remaining cream. The potatoes should be just below the top of the dish. Gently firm down the potatoes and cream.
    6. Put the dish in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes cooking turn the dish so that the potatoes cook evenly.
    7. If the cream has bubbled all over the potatoes and they have not browned, sprinkle a thin layer of grated cheese over the top and put under a hot grill until browned.

    This is a really easy recipe to follow and the dish tastes great. I tried it with Beef Wellington and Green Beans and it went really well.  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Very easy to make and it was very nice, but it was just lacking a little something, but being far from an expert, I'm not sure what. But I will make again.  -  22 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Made this as part of our Valentines dinner. It was amazing and so easy. I found it took a little longer to cook than the recipe said . Sprinkled cheese on top. Very rich you don't need a lot. Definitely recommend making this.  -  15 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
