Using chicken boullion instead of a cream sauce is a wonderful idea. Thank you. I added thinly sliced onions and chopped garlic to the middle of the potatoes and sprinkled on some parsley. It made a wonderful dish that was low fat and calories. To speed up the cooking time, I microwaved it first for 10 mins on high.
This was terrifically easy and yummy. I had my doubts as to lightening up a classic like this, but the starch from the potatoes made a nice sauce that oozed out from between the layers, and was even better the next day. I used low sodium chicken stock and corrected the seasoning with a bbq spice rub I always have around and some fresh ground pepper. Oh, and I didn't peel my potatoes. If you do not know the value of a mandolin (a slicing plane used in Asian kitchens, but readily available here), you would if you also had this in the oven in less than 5 minutes. Thanks for a super lightened-up recipe for comfort food!
I wish i could give this even more then a five star rating,i made some minor changes when i made this dish.I used beef broth instead of just water,I didnt have any chicken boullion in the house so i threw one beef boullion cube into the pot as i was heating it to pour over the potatoes I also thinly sliced an onion to layer in with the potatoes.My partner HATES scalloped potatoes in the traditional white sauce,she really liked this though.Personally I thought they were absolutely AWESOME! Thank you so much for posting this recipe MizzNezz,im sure i will make this dish often.
This was wonderful! I also took from the other review that used low-fat stock., and added a cajun seasoning. Also 1/2 way through I sorta tossed the potatoes and added another dose of parm. Sure it would have been great without though. I can't express how nice it is to have a low-fat version of this, mostly b/c I am lactose intolerant and can only have small amounts of dairy, the parm is just the right amount. without all the heavy creams and/or milks.
This was gorgeous. I had to drain the pots 5 mins before serving but the taste and texture was lovely. Definitely one for the future as I love dauphinoise but never seem to have cream on hand
We had high hopes for this but it didn't work out as we had hoped. Although I followed the recipe exactly, the potatoes were left swimming in the chicken broth; we had to drain them to serve. Perhaps due to the excessive liquid, the flavor was also very diluted. It has a lot of potential, though, and we are planning on trying it again with some modifications. Thanks for posting it!
Don't tell them this is low fat! This was different than the cream sauce that I usualy make it with. The only thing I added was onions and garlic to it. Excellant!
Twenty-five stars. My idea of perfect comfort food. It was a hot summer evening so I "baked" this on the grill at medium heat. I added a couple of spicy chicken sausages but otherwise didn't change the recipe.
