Fancy Friday Night Suppers...

♥ Ceri makes...  whipped up a delicious Friday night treat supper for my housemate Jezza & I.  I served some super tender venison loin that had been butchered by my brother at his 'Deer in a day' course,  sealed first on the hob and then roast gently in the oven.  As a side dish to the meat we had my favourite  (and definitely most indulgent)  potato dish ...creamy dauphinoise potatoes,  delicious! 

To make these delicious twice baked dauphinoise potatoes at home simply follow my easy instructions...

♥ You will need approx 500-700g of potatoes,  500ml single cream  and approx 150-250g of grated cheese depending on how cheesy you like it (I use cheddar but if you fancy something a little bit different smoked cheese also works very well in this dish)
♥ Pre-heat the oven to 200C, Gas Mark 6.
First you need to peel the potatoes and then finely slice them,  either using a knife or to make things super quick a mandolin slicer.
♥ Put the sliced potato in a large mixing bowl,  pour over the cream and some seasoning.  Give this a good mix with your hands,  then add the grated cheese and again give this a good mix with your hands.
♥ Place the creamy potato mix in a large ovenproof dish and cook for approx 45 minutes,  remove from the oven for around 20 minutes,  then return to the oven for an additional 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes are golden on top  ...alternatively you can pre-cook ahead of dinner and return to the oven for the second baking 40-45 minutes before you are serving.
♥ You are now ready to serve,  enjoy!
