Dauphinoise potatoes are thinly sliced potatoes baked casserole-style in a decadent mixture of cream and cheese for a comforting side dish everyone will enjoy.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and sliced 1/8-inch thick with peel
  • 0.5 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
  • 0.125 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • cooking spray
  • 4 ounces Gruyere cheese, shredded

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. 2 Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 1 minute. Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Whisk in heavy cream, milk, and salt until smooth. Add sliced potatoes and bring to a simmer; cook, gently stirring occasionally, until potatoes begin to soften, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in thyme and pepper.
  3. 3 Layer 1/2 of the potatoes in the prepared baking dish; sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese evenly over potatoes. Top with remaining potatoes and spoon remaining liquid left in the pot over the potatoes. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  4. 4 Bake in preheated oven until sauce is thickened, top is browned in spots, and potatoes are tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving; garnish with additional thyme.

  1. Awesome, and would not change anything!
  2. Delicious but it might need to have you double the liquid amounts if you want to have a deep saucepan.
