Gratin Dauphinois

  • With the garlic clove cut in half, generously rub the bottom and the sides of your Starfrit 5.3" (13.5cm) Cast Iron Skillets with Maple Wood Trays.
  • Afterwards, repeat the procedure with a piece of butter.
  • With a mandoline, cut the potatoes in thin slices (1mm thick) and gather all the slices in a bowl. 
  • Season with salt and pepper, add the thyme and the minced garlic. 
  • Pour the dairy products on top. 
  • With your hands, separate each slice to make sure that they are not sticking together. 
  • Mix again to ensure that the seasoning is everywhere. 
  • Then place the potato slices one layer after the other in your mini pans that you previously prepared.
  • The only left to do is to pour the extra sauce in the pans. 
  • If the potatoes are not covered with the liquid, add cream.
  • Place the pans in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. 
  • Your knife should easily pierce through the layers of potatoes to consider the dish cooked. 
  • Once cooked, the gratin should have a nice golden color.


  • In a hot oiled pan, grill mushrooms with a dash of salt to give them a nice color.
  • Take off the heat and add goat cheese crumbles - keep warm.
  • Adjust seasoning.

Finishing touches

  • When ready to serve, place the Starfrit 5.3" (13.5cm) Cast Iron Skillets in the oven for 3 minutes.
  • Once taken out of the oven, place them on the Maple Wood Trays, and sprinkle the chives on top.
