Little dauphinoise stacks

  • serves 6
  • A little effort

It's easy to make dauphinoise potatoes but why not make them look a bit smarter by giving everyone their own individual cut out stack? You can make this recipe ahead then just cut out and heat the stacks to serve.



  • whole milk 150ml
  • double cream  300ml pot
  • garlic 1 clove, bashed
  • Desirée potatoes 1kg, peeled and thinly sliced


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180c/fan 160c/gas 4. Heat the milk, cream and garlic in a pan, season well, then add the potatoes and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Cool a little, then fish out the garlic and layer the slices of potato in a large rectangular baking dish, pressing down as you layer.

  • Step 3

    Pour over the liquid so it covers the potato. Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes until the potatoes are golden and tender. Take out and leave to sit for 20 minutes.

  • Step 4

    To serve, either use a large cutter to cut 6 circles or cut into neat squares and slide onto the plate using a spatula.
