Blue Cheese Potatoes Au Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 4 cups




  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • You need a 7x11 baking pan plus a larger one with 2 sides for the water bath.
  • Put some water on to boil -- the amount depends on your pans. You’ll need enough to fill the larger baking pan with about an inch of water when the smaller pan is in place.
  • Butter the smaller baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix the eggs, cream and cheeses until well blended.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Both cheeses are usually quite salty so watch the amount of salt you use.
  • Fold the sliced potatoes into the cheese mixture.
  • Spread the mixture into the buttered pan and cover with aluminum foil.
  • Place the pan with the potatoes in the larger pan and set it on the oven shelf.
  • Carefully pour hot water into the outer pan so that the water is about an inch deep.
  • Bake one hour.
  • Remove the cover and bake until the top is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
