Serving Suggestions

Boulangere Potatoes are delicious if you have time – simply layer some thinly sliced potatoes and shallots or onions in a baking dish. Add seasoning and a few more knobs of butter as you do the layers. Finish off with some chicken stock. Heat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180°C (350°F) and bake for 40 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
