Potato Side Dishes

You are unlikely to find a better food combination than potatoes and cheese. Potato casseroles, pies and side dishes are amazing.

Too ordinary? Today we are going to prove to you that potato side dishes with cheese can both have piquant Eastern overtones and be tender like a French delicacy.

  • 2 cups (200 g) hard cheese
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk

  1. Peel and cut potatoes into thin slices. Grate part of the cheese on a coarse grater, and chop the garlic. Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  2. Gently mix everything with your hands. In a separate bowl beat eggs with milk. Grease the baking dish with half the butter. Put one layer of potatoes in it.
  3. Sprinkle it with a part of cheese on top. Then put more layers of potatoes, cheese and potatoes again. Pour the dish with egg-milk mixture, sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
  4. Put butter cubes on top of the side dish. Bake the dish in the oven preheated to 350 °F (180 °C) for 40 minutes. Serve in the baking dish or divided into servings.

These different, yet super delicious side dishes will be a great addition to your main course. Try serving spicy potatoes with lamb, and Dauphinoise ones with duck. These combinations will amaze even the most picky guests.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
