Potatoes in Beer

Carole's Chatter: Potatoes in Beer

This resulted in delicately flavoured potatoes.  Would be easier if you had a food processor or mandolin.


Potatoes sliced as thinly as you can
Finely sliced onion
1 cup beer (I used lager)
½ cup of cream


Pre-heat your oven to as hot as you dare.

Slice your onion and potatoes

Put a layer of onion in the bottom of your dish – no need to grease it first

Then alternate layers of potato and onion finishing with potato on top.  Overlap the potato slices.  Salt each layer.

Pour the beer over the potatoes.

Put thin shavings of butter on top.

Put it in the oven and after 10 minutes lower the temperature a bit.  Give it another 40 minutes and then pour the cream over the potatoes – as evenly as you can.  After 10 more minutes in the oven you are finished.

Please note there is no pepper or cheese in this recipe but it was still tasty.


  1. I'm going to try this!! I'm not a beer drinker but we always have some on hand for Louis Dean and his son.....

  2. Minus the onions I'll be in on this!

  3. So different — in a good way. I’ll have to give this a try

  4. I think this will be a great recipe for my three men (hubby and two grown-up sons, LOL). Thank you.
