Day 12, whatever tickles your fancy

I thought i'd do another foodie post for this. So here is Potatoes Boulangere, lovely served with mear(we had chicken).
The name of these(obviously French) is from when they were prepared in peoples homes and then they were taken along to the bakery for cooking.
You'll need(to make enough for 4)
1.75kg (3lb) floury potatoes
2 onions, finely sliced
600ml (1 pint) chicken stock
3 sprigs thyme
50g (2oz) butter
Peel the potatoes and slice them thinly. Grease an ovenproof dish and put a layer of potatoes on the bottom, then a layer of onions on top. Repeat with another layer of potatoes and onions and finish with a neat layer of potatoes. Pour over your stock and sprinkle with thyme. Dot with small pieces of butter and bake in the oven(200C) for 30 minutes.Take out cover with foil and bake for another 40 minutes. Remove the foil and insert a knife, the potatoes should be soft. Then pop the dish back into the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes until potatoes are golden.Me and Phil decided to add a little cheese to ours and let it melt in the oven for a couple of minutes and it was lovely.
Although it looks like it takes ages to make, its easy and you can just forgot about it once in the oven!
