Gordon Ramsay’s Potatoes Boulangère Recipe from The F Word

Gordon Ramsay made these potatoes to go along with his Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb[1] on The F Word[2], Series One, Episode One.

His commies used a Mandoline Slicer[3] to get uniformly thin slices of potatoes, but used a knife for the onion. You can use a knife or a slicer for both, but try to get the slices as even as possible.

Ingredients:

  • 1 liter chicken stock (roughly 4 1/4 cups, or just over a quart)
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 3 crushed cloves of garlic
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 large onions, peeled and sliced
  • 4 large Desiree potatoes peeled and finely sliced (on a mandolin if possible)
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (392 degrees if you have a digital oven)
Bring the chicken stock to a boil and add thyme, rosemary, and crushed garlic cloves. Simmer a few minutes and strain (remember, retain the chicken stock, not the herbs). Set aside.

Add olive oil to a hot heavy pan and saute the onions and finely chopped garlic until softened and lightly colored.

Coat the inside of a casserole dish or oven safe pan and layer the onions followed by the potatoes. Continue alternating potatoes and onions until finished. Don’t forget to season each layer with salt & pepper as you go.

Pour the chicken stock from earlier over the potato mixture until it’s about 2/3rds full. Press down on the mixture to help the potatoes absorb as much stock as possible. Drizzle a little olive oil on top.

Bake in the oven for approximately 20 – 25 minutes or until soft and golden on top.
