Taste of Home: Gratin Dauphinois

Gratin Dauphinois is one of the potato dishes I really love, so I learned how to make it from Dr K. I have learned that it is a traditional dish in one of the places in the southeastern of France called Dauphine.

So, while I was in the Philippines, I made it for my family and friends. I showed how to make it to my aunt and shared it among family and friends while having an easy conversation with them. All in all we had a great dinner.

For those who love creamy potato and for those who wish to try it, here’s a traditional French recipe for you:

  • 500 grams of bacon
  • 1 pack of peeled garlic
  • 100 grams of cheese

  1. Wash the potatoes and peel them. Then cut the potatoes into thin slices.
  2. Cut the garlic into thin slices.
  3. Cut the bacon into small bits and then fry it a pan.
  4. In an oven dish, put a layer of sliced potatoes, a layer of sliced garlic, a layer of fried bacon and a layer of cream.
  5. Repeat step 4 twice. Finish a layer of potatoes on top.
  6. Pour half glass of water over the dish.
  7. Put the dish in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 250 degrees Celsius.
  8. Grate the cheese. Put the cheese on top of the dish and put the dish back in the oven for 15 minutes.
  9. Serve and enjoy your meal.
