Potato Gratin

Potato Gratin
Easy to make gratin and a versatile and tasty side dish. A traditional French recipe a gratin refers to the adition of breadcrumbs or cheese to give a browned topping. A great family favourite.
Method: 

Lightly grease an ovenproof dish.

Very thinly slice the potatoes then cover the base of the dish with a layer of slices.

Make alternate layers of potato, tomato and cheese seasoning with salt and pepper. Reserve approximately 25 g (1 oz) of cheese for the top.  Finish with a layer of potatoes.

Pour over the cream and top with the reserved cheese.

Cook for 1-1½ hours or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown - if the top is brown before the potatoes are cooked cover with foil and continue cooking.

It tastes so yummy and a nice treat!!!!

what oven temp should this be cooked at?

Hi Cath,

180°C, Gas Mark 4 should do the trick and cook it for 1 - 1¼ hours or until the potatoes are soft and cooked through and the top goes golden brown.

Love to hear how it went!

Hi, is it a pint of cream or 150ml.
Thanks

Hi Jane,

The recipe should read 150ml or 1/4 pint. We've amended the recipe to reflect this, thanks for flagging up.

as before 675g of potatoes is not 1lb but 1½ lb

Hi there,
Thanks for picking this up, you are quite right. It should indeed be 1 1/2 lb (675g) and not 1lb. I'll amend it to reflect this.
Many thanks,
Ellie

My wife Betty is dying to try this receipe, but the weight of potates is still contradictory. Is it 675g (1 1/2 lb ) or is it 1 lb only which is only 454 g ? Sorry about this, - please can you put it right, 'cause I'm hungry ) - Eric Grant

Hi there,
I'm afraid we don't produce these details as these recipes are for home cooking and not for commercial production. You could have a look on this website www.potatoesforcaterers.org.uk and see if the information is there though.
Hope that helps,
Ellie
