Potatoes Grandmere

"Translated from French to English, it means "Grandmother's potatoes". It's a very nice potato dish that's good with just about any meat. I like to sprinkle some fresh parsley over the top just before serving; basil or oregano is also nice. Servings will vary, as the size of potatoes will differ; cooking times may vary for the same reason. Check at 45 minutes."

    Need to know if you can make this casserole ahead of time. Thanks

    I scaled back for 2 serves and served 3 of us with one serve left over, I used a 8x8 cake tin and baked at 175C fan forced for 40 minutes (sorry no mention was made as to what to do with the parsley, assumed it was to sprinkle on the finished product, which I didn't do as the dish I was serving it with was already liberally sprinkled with parsley). Flavour wise we thoroughly enjoyed the rich creamy flavour of the potatoes (I used Carisma - a low GI white potatoes). Thank you FLUFFSTER, made for Help A Naked Recipe, Photos Forum event.

    We found this to be very bland. I cut the recipe in half and it took about 45-50 minutes to bake in an 8x8 glass dish. Maybe I should have used others' suggestions and increase the mustard, etc. I did increase the garlic but that didn't seem to help. I think there are many possibilities with this recipe and will try some different (or more) seasoning to kick it up a bit. Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent! They were so easy, wonderful and perfect. I did add a bit more mustard and a bit more parm on top. But that didn't change the overall ease and delicious flavor. It was just really good. Next time I may try a shallot or 2, but not necessary. They were good as is. Just yummy! I made the full recipe and have some leftover which will be my lunch. I have just a slice of ham in the freezer so I will chop it up and make a small snack for lunch The rest I gave to my guest last night and to my son for dinner as he loves potato dishes. It will definite be a dish to make again. Thx for a great recipe!!

    Another OMG amazing recipe. 5 stars is not enough! I added more Dijon and a bit of dried onion flakes as some folks recommended. This is an amazing side dish that I served with a beef tenderloin. I made & baked them ahead, then warmed through right before dinner time. My kids even loved them! The flavors are subtle and perfect. Although the recipe does not specify, these should be baked uncovered. This will be my go to "cheesy potato" recipe from now on! Thanks Fluffster!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with Food.com since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
