Healthier than Dauphinoise potatoes, but just as impressive, these Boulangere potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday roast. Layers of thinly sliced potatoes, golden onions and stock make up this French classic. It’ll keep in the fridge for a few days and can be reheated, so you can use the leftovers for a mid-week family supper too. Sprinkle with cheese for an extra crispy topping that the family will love.
