  • 3 shallots, peeled
  • 2 cups of neutral oil (to fry)
  • sea salt
  • 680g butternut squash
  • 680g large waxy potatoes (eg. red ones)
  • 470ml whole milk
  • 470ml heavy cream
  • 4 large garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 springs of thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 120g Gruyère Cheese, finely grated
    List Item Description
  • 1tbsp sea salt
  • a little freshly ground pepper
  • butter for greasing
How To
  • 1
    Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 205°C.
  • 2
    Step 2
    Bring the milk and cream to a low boil over medium heat in a large saucepan and add garlic, herbs and seasoning. Stir occasionally to ensure a film does not form on the surface. Once boiling, immediately lower the heat and let simmer gently for 2-3 minutes.
  • 3
    Step 3
    While the cream is heating, peel the squash and potatoes and discard skins. Using a mandolin or sharp knife, thinly slice the squash into 3 millimeter even slices. Repeat with the potatoes.
  • 4
    Step 4
    Carefully slide the squash and potatoes into the cream and simmer for about 7 minutes, until the slices are just barely tender–they should hold their shape and retain a bite. Use a large slotted spoon or spider to remove the vegetables from the cream and set on a large baking sheet or dish to cool slightly. Reserved the remaining seasoned cream for building the gratin.
  • 5
    Step 5
    Grease an 20×20 cm or 23×15 cm baking dish lightly with butter. Alternating between squash and potatoes, lay one slice at a time down into rows, ensuring that the vegetables are all slightly overlapping one another. Once the bottom layer is complete and covers the entire dish, drizzle about two tablespoons of reserved cream over the vegetables, followed by a sprinkle of a quarter of the cheese (about 25grams). Repeat this process with remaining vegetables, topping each layer with more cream and Gruyere, until you have at least 3 layers and no vegetables remain.
  • 6
    Step 6
    To finish, pour about 60ml of the cream all over the vegetables, then top with the remainder of Gruyere.
  • 7
    Step 7
    Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown. If the cheese is not browned on top, broil on high for about 1 minute, keeping a close eye so it doesn’t burn. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Step 8
    While the gratin is baking, make the crispy shallots: Place the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
  • Step 9
    Using a mandolin or a very sharp knife, cut the shallots into very thin rings, about 3 millimeters, and use your hands to separate the rings. Add the shallots to the hot oil and let the shallots brown gently, stirring occasionally so they don’t stick together, and cook for about 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Turn down the heat if the shallots brown too quickly.
  • Step 10
    Use a slotted spoon or spider to remove the shallots from the oil, carefully shaking off any excess oil, and transfer the shallots to the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with kosher salt. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Step 11
    To serve, once the gratin has rested, top the dish with crispy shallots and serve.
