Savoy potato gratin recipe (gratin Savoyard)
- Cuisine: French
- Serves 6-8
Alpine families love this classic potato dish which is very easy to make and delicious. It's usually served at dinner with a salad or at Sunday lunch as part of a feast.
Ingredients1.5kg potatoes (of regular shape)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of grated nutmeg
150g Gruyère cheese, grated
150g Beaufort cheese, grated
1½ cups chicken stock
PreparationPreheat the oven to 200°C.
Peel the potatoes, cut them into 3mm slices and place in a bowl with salt, pepper and a little grated nutmeg. Mix well together.
Generously butter a medium to large ovenproof gratin dish with one-third of the butter. Place half the potato slices neatly in the dish and top with the grated Gruyère cheese. Cover with the remaining potatoes, taking time to make a regular pattern with the slices. Sprinkle the Beaufort cheese on top and dot with knobs of the remaining butter.
Carefully add the chicken stock.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 150°C and cook for a further 45 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
