Squash and blue cheese Dauphinoise

"This is a rich and flavourful dish to serve as a hearty side or vegetarian main. Brimming with the fantastic flavours of blue cheese, garlic and squash, it works really well with the creamy potatoes." - chef Chris Baber

Preparation

Grate the garlic cloves. Finely chop the parsley.

And the rest...

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  2. 2 Slice the potatoes thinly (around half a centimetre thick), leaving the skin on and halve the butternut squash slices so they are slightly thinner.
  3. 3 Add the milk, cream and garlic to a pan and bring to the boil. Crumble in half the stilton, then turn off the heat and stir everything together well until all the cheese has melted.
  4. 4 Layer the potatoes and butternut slices into an ovenproof dish and pour over the creamy mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  5. 5 Remove the foil, and sprinkle over the breadcrumbs, chopped parsley and remaining stilton.
  6. 6 Return to the oven for a further 15 minutes until everything is golden and bubbling - and the vegetables are tender when sliced with a knife.
