You know when you get invited somewhere for dinner or a BBQ and you’re like, what could I bring? Someone always brings a salad, or a garlic bread (solid options… but BORING!!!) Well, this recipe, is relatively quick, SUPER easy, and mucho affordable. Not to mention it tastes FREAKING DELICIOUS and everyone ALWAYS goes back for more (yes, I will personally guarantee this) Unless that person doesn’t like potatoes or onion…. but who doesn’t (Actually, I know a few people) ANWAY, I digress….
Before I go ahead and give you this recipe, I need to disclose something. I was 39 weeks pregnant when I made it. And I may have had a serious case of baby brain. Because I accidentally tripled, maybe even quadrupled the recipe (don’t even ask me how). So if you’re looking at the photos that are to follow, and you think to yourself, my GOD that is a lot of potatoes. It is. It’s too many. Don’t be like me. Follow the recipe and not my photos. Okay, lets get into this!
10 medium potatoes
2 packets french onion soup
600ml thickened cream
100ml full fat milk
Preheat your oven to 180°C/360°F.
Wash the potatoes and then slice them thinly and set them aside. You can peel them if you like, but I like to keep the skin on; mainly because I’m really lazy, but also, I kind of like how crispy the skin goes when it’s the oven. But, probably more because I’m too lazy to peel.
^ It was at this point that I thought to myself, I think I may have gone overboard with the potatoes….. But I kept smiling :)
In a mixing bowl, combine the french onion soup powder, the cream and the milk. Whisk it until it’s all combined. It doesn’t matter too much if the french onion powder doesn’t fully dissolve. I totally forgot to do this, but you can also chop up an onion and add it to this mixture if you want it to be extra onion-y.
In a large baking dish, layer the potatoes (and onions if you choose to add extra) and then pour over the creamy mixture.
Bake in the oven for approximately 40 minutes or until the potatoes and fully cooked and tender.
It’s as simple as that! I topped it off with Rosemary because that looks nice in photos, it tasted pretty good too, but that’s totally up to you.
This is seriously such an easy, yummy dish to make! And it’s heavy on the flavour![penci_recipe]
