Recipe: Garlic Potato Gratin

31 Oct

Looking for an easy yet delicious side dish to serve? Then this dish is definitely a must-try. I love potatoes and garlic and the combination of both is delicious. The best part of this recipe is that it uses basic ingredients that can be found in almost every pantry!

Garlic Potato Gratin


3 – 4 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 stick salted butter, cut into small pieces
3 to 5 garlic cloves, chopped
garlic paste * optional
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1/2 cup cream (I use low-fat)
chopped fresh parsley, or chives, for garnishing


– Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C

– Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin slices

– Butter the bottom and sides of a baking casserole ( I use a 1 Quart dish)

– Sprinkle some garlic along the edges of the buttered sides of the casserole – drizzle some garlic paste for extra garlicy flavor!

– Line the bottom of the casserole with a layer of the potatoes, dot with butter pieces, sprinkle with salt and pepper

– Drizzle a few spoonfuls of cream and sprinkle some chopped garlic cloves

(Optional to sprinkle in some onions in or cheese depending on what you like)

– Repeat layering of potatoes + butter + salt & pepper + cream until all the potatoes have been used

– End the top with a dabbing of butter, the last slosh of cream, and a sprinkling of salt & pepper

– Bake for 60-80 mins – until the potatoes are tender and the top of the potatoes should be start to turn golden brown with darker brown splotches here and there

(you can raise temperature of oven to around 400F/200C towards the end 10 mins)

– Sprinkle with parsley and serve!

      Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!
