Foodie Friday | Dauphinoise Potatoes

This recipe is inspired and adapted from one of the recipes in Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals cookbook. I changed the recipe around a bit to work for me by removing and swapping some of the ingredients for things that are more regularly sitting in our fridge. This dish goes well with nearly anything from “boerewors” to pork chops and it’s really easy and fast to make.


  • 4 – 6 Potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 250 ml Cream
  • 1 Purple Onion, peeled, halved and sliced (You can use a white onion as well I just like the colour the purple onion ads to the dish)
  • 1/2 Cup of grated cheddar cheese OR Half a packet of parmesan cheese, you can use nearly any type of cheese you like
  • Thyme to taste
  • Nutmeg to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 Bay leaves


Pack the potato slices into a prepared oven dish, pack the onion slices on top, sprinkle the cheese over as well as all the herbs and spices. Pour the cream over, cover with foil and bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes!

Wishing you all a great weekend!

    1. The recipe I adapted it from has anchovies in lol and we add cheese on as we have it in the house, I saw another variation of this where you put bread crumbs mixed with parmesan on top
