Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 55g (2 oz) butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 450g (1 lb) waxy potatoes, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 110g (4 oz) semi-hard cheese, thinly sliced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. In a frying pan over a medium heat, add the oil and butter followed by the onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onions turn soft. Add the potatoes, salt, pepper and thyme and toss gently in the cooking oil. Cover and cook over a low heat for 25 minutes until the potatoes are soft, turning occasionally.
  2. Lay the cheese over the potatoes and cook for a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.


This recipe calls for waxy potatoes which are good at remaining firm when cooked. A great variety to use in the recipe would be Jersey Royals.
This recipe works best with a semi-hard cheese such as Taleggio or Port Salut.

A tasty side dish although I had it as a main using red onions, Lady Balfour potatoes and mature cheddar. - 15 Jan 2015
