With a nice hint of garlic, these potatoes are a delicious addition to any meal and are much lighter than those with a cream-laden gratin. To slice them easily, cut a little piece off the bottom of each potato to stabilize it on the cutting board. Serve with your favourite baked fish or chicken.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 Yukon Gold potato (about 2 lb/900 g)
  • 1 small onion sliced

Method

In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook garlic, stirring, for 1 minute. Add flour, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Gradually whisk in milk; cook, whisking constantly, until boiling and thickened, about 8 minutes.

Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Layer one-third in greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish or casserole dish; spread half of the onion over top. Repeat layers. Arrange remaining potatoes over top. Pour sauce over top, using back of knife to ease sauce between layers.

Cover and bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 1 hour. Uncover and bake until lightly browned and potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
