A most decadent side dish, this French classic is made of layers upon layers of finely sliced potatoes, cream and butter. Fully cooked.
Potato Dauphinoise is from the French Dauphinè region, where their gratin dishes are famous for. Potatoes are thinly sliced and layered raw in the baking dish that has been rubbed with a raw garlic clove around the edges. Then a layering of potatoes with cream, butter, salt, and pepper is baked in the oven. It is similar to Potatoes Au Gratin but without the cheese topping. The starch in the raw potato as it cooks makes it thick and creamy.
