- Pommes boulangères

There is something delicious, so easy, buttery and pretty that my mum used to make a lot  is ‘pommes boulangères’.

I have made the same in small little flan molds. It can be done in loaf baking tin, baking tray…

Pommes boulangères’ serves 4


  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 small onions
  • 100ml of chicken or vegetables stock
  • A lot of butter
  • Salt



Peel and wash the potatoes, peel the onions and slice everything very finely, ideally with a mandolin.

Fry the onion on very low heat with butter and a little bit of oil not to burn the butter and brown the onions prettily.

When onions are ready, butter the tins and spread the potatoes slice by slice starting with one layer from the bottom to the edge in order to cover both, a bit of onions slices, add little cubes of butter and salt. Carry on the same way till the tin is full. Pour the chicken stock almost to the top of the mold.

Preheat the oven to 180° and bake for around 30 min.

Pick you knife in the potatoes to find out if they are cooked.
