Crisp on the top, soft and creamy underneath, and flavoured with garlic and thyme, these potatoes are fantastic with roast meat or grilled fish.


  • 1 kilo potatoes
  • Sprig of thyme
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 500 ml milk
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Set your oven to 180 C, 350 F or Gas Mark 4.
  2. Butter the oven-proof dish
  3. Peel and slice the potatoes thinly into disks
  4. Put a layer of potato disks in the dish. Dot with knobs of butter. Season with salt and pepper – it is really important to season every layer. Sprinkle with a few thyme leaves and a little crushed garlic.  I prefer this dish to have a whisper of garlic so only use one clove throughout but feel free to increase the amount of garlic if you like!
  5. Repeat step 3 until the dish is filled.
  6. Pour the milk into the dish.
  7. Put the dish into your oven and cook for around 1 hour. At the end of this time, the potatoes should be soft, and most of the milk should have been absorbed, and the top should be crisp and golden.
