  • Summary

    Of all the ways to cook potato, this is my absolute favourite. Potato + cream + cheese with a hint of garlic and thyme created by the French = pure heaven. This recipe is based on Julia Child's recipe, the queen of French Cooking. The original recipe calls for gruyere cheese which is quite expensive here in Australia so I usually substitute with tasty or cheddar, or any other great melting cheese.

    Ingredients

    • 2 lb /1 kg starchy potatoes (Note 1)
    • ½ clove unpeeled garlic
    • 4 tablespoons butter, chopped into small cubes (Note 3)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ? teaspoon pepper
    • 1½ cups grated gruyere cheese (or tasty or cheddar)
    • 1½ cups cream
    • 2 tsp thyme leaves (optional - but highly recommended)
