Lyonnaise Potatoes


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Peel potatoes and place in a bowl filled with water so that they don’t turn brown.
  • Peel onions and slice into rings. Heat a pan and add some olive oil and butter.
  • Sauté the onions. Add the sugar, pepper, salt, thyme and oregano. Add a little water to help the onions caramelize and stir continuously.
  • Slice the potatoes very thin by using a mandolin.
  • Add the bouillon cubes, garlic, some oregano and thyme to a pot with boiling water. Bring to a boil and stir until the bouillon cubes dissolve. Add the potato slices and stir. Boil for 4-5 minutes.
  • Grease a baking pan and line with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle the parchment paper with some olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and thyme.
  • Strain the potatoes. Lay a layer of potato slices in the baking pan. Cover with some caramelized onions. Repeat this process until all the ingredients are used in all the layers.
  • To finish, pour the potato and bouillon cube broth over the layers in the baking pan. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and pepper. Top with some olive oil.
  • Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Remove the aluminum foil about 10 minutes before the dish is ready. Continue cooking until the parmesan becomes crispy and golden brown.


If you don’t have a mandolin it will be hard to slice the potatoes so thin. Since they will be thicker, boil them 5 minutes longer to make sure they cook properly!
