Chef's Note

This is a classic recipe. Its name comes from the days when the dish was cooked in the oven of the baker (boulanger).

For 6 servings

- 1 kg potatoes
- 2 onions
- 1 garlic clove
- 60 g / 4 Tbsp. butter
- 1/4 bunch curled parsley
- 1 litre / 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 twig of thyme
- 1 laurel leaf
- salt and Pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C / 350 °F.
  2. Peel the potatoes and slice thinly (about 3 mm). Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Wash and pick over the parsley; chop finely.
  4. Peel the onions and slice thinly.
  5. Heat half the butter in a skillet and sweat the sliced onions and the garlic until lightly colored.
  6. Butter an earthenware baking dish; place layers of potatoes in the dish, alternating with the onions and the chopped parsley. Place a bay leaf and a sprig of thyme in the middle.
  7. Add enough broth just to cover, then bake for 45 to 60 minutes. The potatoes should be soft and golden.
