Dauphinoise Potatoes Recipe

Dauphinoise potatoes, a classic French dish originating from the Dauphiné region, have been enchanting taste buds for generations. This creamy, indulgent potato gratin is a luxurious treat for the senses. But today, we’re going to take a delightful detour from tradition. We’re infusing this beloved recipe with the irresistible flavors of Gruyère cheese, the lusciousness of heavy cream and whole milk, and a touch of exoticism with Ground Pumpkin Spice and the mysterious Zipp Zapp Zopp spice blend.

The Foundation

To embark on our culinary adventure, you need the right potatoes. Opt for starchy varieties like Russets or Yukon Golds. Their high starch content ensures a rich, creamy texture, making each bite a velvety delight.

Achieving that melt-in-the-mouth experience requires precision in slicing your potatoes. Thin, uniform slices are key to ensuring even cooking and a smooth, luxurious texture in every layer of your gratin.

Gruyère cheese, hailing from Switzerland, is a cheese aficionado’s dream. Its nutty, slightly sweet, and creamy flavor profile marries perfectly with Dauphinoise potatoes. With its characteristic melty goodness and a hint of caramel, Gruyère elevates your dish to gourmet status.

The Unexpected Fusion of Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin spice, typically reserved for autumnal delights, brings an element of surprise to your Dauphinoise. It infuses a hint of warm, earthy flavors, creating a symphony of taste that marries the traditional with the exotic.

Unveiling the Secrets of the Zipp Zapp Zopp Blend

The enigmatic Zipp Zapp Zopp blend is your secret weapon in this recipe. With a mysterious combination of spices, it adds depth and intrigue to your Dauphinoise. Unleash its power judiciously, letting its complex profile elevate your dish.

To create a harmonious blend of flavors and textures, layer your sliced potatoes, Gruyère cheese, and your spice mix. Repeat the layers, allowing the cream and spice blend to seep through, infusing every inch of your dish with indulgence.

Your Dauphinoise Potatoes, infused with Gruyère, cream, and those intriguing spices, deserve a grand entrance. Serve in individual ramekins or a beautiful, oven-safe dish. Garnish with a pinch of fresh herbs for an elegant presentation that matches the delightful flavors within.

Dauphinoise Potatoes Recipe



1 TBS Butter, unsalted

8 oz Gruyère Cheese

2 1/2 lbs Yukon Gold Potatoes

3 Cloves Garlic

2 Cups Heavy Cream

2 Cups Whole Milk

1 tsp Kosher Salt

1 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1/2 tsp Ground Pumpkin Spice

1 TBS Zipp Zapp Zopp


  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish or other 4-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon unsalted butter.
  2. Grate 8 ounces Gruyère cheese on the large holes of a box grater (about 2 cups).
  3. Peel Yukon Gold potatoes, remove any blemishes, slice into 1/4-inch thick rounds, and place into a large pot.
  4. Mince 3 garlic cloves. Add the minced garlic, heavy cream, whole milk, kosher salt, black pepper, Pumpkin Spice, and Zipp Zapp Zopp. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer, stirring often, until the potatoes are fork tender but still slightly firm, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer half of the potatoes into the prepared baking dish and arrange in an even layer. Top with half of the grated cheese. Arrange the remaining potatoes on top of cheese in an even layer. Pour about 2 cups of the cream mixture over the potatoes, stopping just below the top layer. (Do not use all of the cream mixture.) Top with the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake until the potatoes are golden brown and easily pierced with a knife all the way to the bottom of the baking dish, 40 to 45 minutes.
  7. Garnish fresh thyme leaves and let cool at least 15 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
