Parsnip, Potato & St Gall Cheese Gratin

13TH MARCH 2020

St Gall is one of the best Irish cheeses to cook with.

Preparation Time: 30 Minutes

Cook Time: 2 Hours

Serves: 6-8


- 3 large parsnips

- 4 large potatoes

- 4 onions, finely sliced

- 175g Irish St Gall cheese, mature cheddar or gruyere, grated

- 600m double cream


  1. 1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Use a Japanese mandolin or sharp knife to slice the parsnips and potatoes very thinly. Layer the parsnips and potatoes in a shallow gratin dish, sprinkling some cheese and onion and a little drizzle of the cream over each layer, seasoning with salt and pepper as you go. The top layer should be potatoes and parsnips with a final sprinkling of cheese and drizzling of cream.

  2. 2. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 2 hrs, alongside the pork. Remove the foil and continue to bake for 20 mins until golden. For a really golden brown top, finish under a hot grill if you like.
