What is gratin dauphinois
Gratin dauphinois is a french recipe of sliced potatoes mixed with cheese and milk or cream then baked. This kind of dish goes by many names. It can be scalloped potatoes, and here in Australia we call it potato bake – just to name a few!
How to make mini gratin dauphinois stacks
- Spray a 12 hole muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
- Peel your potatoes, then slice them thinly – I use a mandolin for this.
- Add cream, parmesan & garlic to potatoes and mix to coat well.
- Add salt & pepper to taste.
- Distribute the potato slices evenly into the muffin tin holes and bake.
