The ultimate potato bake!!! Potato + cream + cheese with a hint of garlic and thyme created by the French = pure heaven.



  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) cream, full fat
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp (30g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1.25 kg / 2.5 lb starchy potatoes, Russet, Sebago, Maris Piper (Note 2)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups (250g) gruyere (or mozzarella) cheese, grated (Note 3)
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves, fresh (optional - but highly recommended)


  • Place butter, cream and garlic in a jug. Mix until combined.
  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Peel the potatoes and slice them 1/8"/3 mm thick. Or use a slicer!
  • Spread 1/3 of the potatoes in a baking dish (Note 3), then pour over 1/3 of the cream, scatter with 1/3 of the salt, pepper and thyme. Sprinkle with 3/4 cups cheese.
  • Repeat for the 2nd and third layer, but do not finish with cheese on the top layer (will add later).
  • Cover with lid or foil, and bake for 1 hr 15 min or until the potatoes in the middle are soft (use knife to test).
  • Remove foil, top with cheese. Bake for a further 10 to 15 minutes until golden and bubbly. Stand 5 minutes before serving.
