This is a classic Danish dish which I'm sure the culinary masters will roll their eyes over, but it's delicious and easy to make.
Ingredients Steps
  • 1.2 kg (2.6 lb) potatoes
  • 2 large onions
  • 500 ml (~17 f.oz) half & half cream (18%)
  • 100 ml heavy cream
  • 1-2 tbsp salt
  • pepper
01. Wash and peel the potatoes.
02. Cut the potatoes into thin slices (about 1 mm or 1/20 inch thick). You can with advantage use a food processor or grater if you have one.
03. Peel the onions and dice them. You can also blend them, if you think that is easier.
04. In an oven proof dish; Mix the potatoes, diced onions, salt and pepper. If your oven dish doesn''''t have a non-sticking coating; coat the inside with some butter or oil.
05. Pour the light-cream over the potatoes.
06. Cook the potatoes for about 1 hour at 200 C (400 F). Sometimes, the cream will bubble-up a little bit; use a tablespoon to stir in the potatoes so that you avoid a mess in the oven.
