I am hosting my first Christmas for the mother-in-law so of course am freaking out.
I'm planning on cooking a roast something but with a slightly different spin on it from normal Christmas Dinner as it'll be on the 27th so I thought of making something different.
I thought dauphinoise potatoes would go down a treat. I haven't made them before but the recipe seems fairly straightforward. My question is how much prep can I do the day before? As I'm keen to have a few dishes ready and on trays to go in the oven without needing lots of morning prep.
Can I pre-slice the potatoes? Will they keep in water in the fridge?
I have seen some recipes which include cream, garlic and gruyere. I'm guessing these ingredients need to be cooked off immediately prior and cannot be made up beforehand.
