Again I find myself pondering what to cook as a side dish with the everlasting roasted chicken, chicken a la this and chicken a la that. Seriously – we eat a lot of chicken.
When you feel like indulging in a heartening dish, this recipe of Potato Dauphinoise is the way to go. It complements any main meal perfectly and is well suited to present on a summery or cold day, together with a barbeque or a lovely Sunday roast. Or any-day-of-the-week roast for that matter!
So for those of you that’s thinking ‘this woman has gone completely bonkers with this spelling mistake’ – Dauphinoise is a word. A culinary word at that, that describes this delicious potato dish, as thinly sliced potatoes baked in cream, butter and garlic. Go on – Google it! Oh, and it is pronounced “do-fin-wha”.
I just love this creamy dish of Potato Dauphinoise. It probably has loads of calories, but after a hard day’s work and setting up house, entertaining the kids and regrettably cleaning the toilets – this is all you need. In my books Potato Dauphinoise is the perfect comfort food.
