Tips For The Potato Gratin Savoyard Recipe

➡️ Potato gratin is one of the most popular French food recipes. All over the world, most restaurants have at least one au gratin potato recipe on the menu. Of course, in some places, this dish is not called potato gratin, but scalloped potatoes, baked potatoes, potato casserole, and so on.

➡️ There are several French recipes for au gratin potatoes, of which dauphinoise gratin is the most popular. However, there are several very tasty similar recipes that are worth cooking and one of them is savoyard gratin.

➡️ The authentic version of this French gratin recipe does not include cream among the ingredients, but modern versions still present it. As a result, the recipe for scalloped potatoes presented on this page is a kind of combination of dauphinoise potato gratin and potato gratin Savoyard.

➡️ Cooking gratin is quite simple and does not make it difficult for anyone, so even the least experienced can prepare it with excellent results. As a result, there are not many cooking tips to share with you about this au gratin recipe. Maybe I should still point out a few things.

➡️ One is not to open the oven door while baking the dish, as the cold air affects the top layer, which will not rise as usual.

➡️ Second, set the oven to a medium-high temperature and avoid very high temperatures as the bottom of the pan will burn and the top layer of cheese will be very dry and possibly burnt.

➡️ Third, when the potato gratin Savoyard is slightly golden (NOT BROWN!), turn off the oven and leave the casserole inside. This is very important to allow the hardening of the cheese and cream layer inside the food. In addition, the dish will cool down a bit, so you can serve it at the best temperature.

➡️ Enjoy cooking potato gratin Savoyard from scratch!
