This recipe is inspired and adapted from one of the recipes in Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals cookbook. I changed the recipe around a bit to work for me by removing and swapping some of the ingredients for things that are more regularly sitting in our fridge. This dish goes well with nearly anything from “boerewors” to pork chops and it’s really easy and fast to make. Dauphinoise Potatoes.
- 4 – 6 Potatoes, peeled and sliced
- 250 ml Cream
- 1 Purple Onion, peeled, halved and sliced (You can use a white onion as well I just like the colour the purple onion ads to the dish)
- 1/2 Cup of grated cheddar cheese OR Half a packet of parmesan cheese, you can use nearly any type of cheese you like
- Thyme to taste
- Nutmeg to taste
- Salt to taste
- 3 Bay leaves
Pack the potato slices into a prepared oven dish, pack the onion slices on top, sprinkle the cheese over as well as all the herbs and spices. Pour the cream over, cover with foil and bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes!
This is a really lovely side dish and always comes out so creamy. You can even add some more types of veggies to make it work for you. Just don’t add mushrooms or tomatoes (veggies with loads of water) And for an extra spin make it with some bacon!
