The French have always known how to do good potatoes but this gratin method is my favourite. I like to make this when having a roast chicken.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 3 rashers bacon, cut into thin strips
  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 300ml milk
  • 100ml cream
  • 50g grated Comté or Gruyere cheese

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until tender. Add bacon and fry for a few minutes. Drain the contents of the frying pan onto some paper towels and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  3. In a large bowl toss together sliced potatoes, salt, pepper, onions, garlic, bacon and milk. Pour into a well greased baking dish. Pour in the cream and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Serve hot from the baking dish.
