Pommes Coq d’Or

A delicious alternative to mashed potato

Pommes Coq D'Or

Unfortunately, a new job and a trip to Lisbon have made it pretty difficult to put up any new recipes for a while. Apologies. Anyway, we had some old friends over for the weekend and I needed to put together a tasty supper that was quick and easy – I served the pork loin wrapped in Parma ham from an earlier post and paired it with delicious Pommes Coq d’Or and sautéed courgettes. Nom.

You will need…

  • 175ml chicken stock
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 750g of waxy potatoes
  • 25g of butter
  • Optional: alternate the potato layers with wafer thin slices of either celeriac or cauliflower

To make…

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Butter the inside of  a large ovenproof gratin dish.
  • Make up 175ml chicken stock with a good quality stock cube.
  • Mash 2 cloves of garlic with a little sea salt and black pepper until it turns to a paste and add it to the stock.
  • Peel and thinly slice 750g of waxy potatoes – use a mandolin if you have one.
  • Layer the thin slices of potato evenly in the dish to a maximum of up to 4 layers.
  • Pour the chicken stock over the potatoes to come just below the top layer.
  • Dot the top layer with about 25g of butter.
  • Bake in the oven for about an hour until cooked through and golden on top.
