  • butter
  • floury potatoes (such as King Edward) 1kg, peeled and finely sliced on a mandolin or in a food processor
  • double cream 400ml 
  • milk 200ml
  • garlic 3 cloves, peeled 
  • thyme 2 sprigs, leaves picked
  • comté (or veggie alternative) 100g


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter a large baking dish, and add the potato slices in layers into the dish seasoning each layer generously. Bring the cream, milk, garlic and thyme to just before a simmer, and pour over the potatoes, removing the garlic cloves. Sit on a baking sheet (to prevent any spills) and transfer to the oven. Bake for 50 minutes until the potatoes are soft when you push a skewer or a knife into the centre, and sauce bubbling. Scatter over the comté and cook for another 10 minutes until golden. Serve with roast dinners or duck breast.
