Bourguignon potatoes


Bourguignon potatoes
Potatoes cooked "bourguignon" (or Burgundy) style is a delicious twist on a classic potato gratin.

The potatoes are cooked in milk, with added flavour from lardons and fried onions. A tasty topping of cream with Époisses cheese is poured over just before the dish goes in the oven.

Remarks
You can use another cheese of similar style (soft paste and full-flavoured) instead of the Époisses, but replacing it will lose the link to Burgundy.

A bouquet garni will do fine instead of the bayleaf and sage.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
