With fall quickly approaching, it's time put warm and comforting food back on the menu! While most hot dishes take more time to prepare than their cooler counterparts, this recipe offers all of the savory goodness in a fraction of the time.
Nothing says comfort food like a warm potato dish, especially when cheese is involved! Whether you call it a gratin or opt for the fancier term "dauphinoise," most people can agree that this dish is a winner.
From kitchen to table in half an hour, this mouthwatering potato dish is sure to become you new family favorite!
Look no further than Jamie Oliver's shortcut version of potato dauphinoise. This creamy, warm, and flavorful dish does not disappoint. The result is comfort food heaven, and no one will know that it only took 30 minutes to prepare!
Beginning with a couple pounds of scalloped potatoes, he adds sliced red onion for a burst of flavor. Keep in mind that the harshness of the onion will mellow out, so don't hesitate to add extra to taste.
He then adds about ¾ of a can of heavy cream, along with a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper.
This is where the recipe takes an interesting turn. Pouring piping hot water from the kettle over the potato and onion mixture, Jamie Oliver demonstrates a brilliant shortcut that will get the cooking process started immediately.
Once the pan is about ¼ full of boiling water, he fires up the burners and lets the potatoes cook right there on the stovetop.
Once the water is boiling, he adds a couple anchovies for flavor as well as some freshly crushed garlic. Nutmeg, Parmesan, and thyme are added to give the dish a more complex flavor profile, but you can spice it up according to your personal tastes.
He then covers the dish with foil and turns the heat down on the stove, letting the potatoes cook for about 6 minutes.
Pulling the foil off, it's time for the final step! He gives the mixture a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, then sends it to the 425 degree oven to get the beautiful gratinated top.
