Pommes Anna with Castello Creamy Blue Cheese

A different kind of French fry – our recipe for Pommes Anna with Blue Cheese is an elegant mashup of rich ingredients, in a satisfying twist on a favoured classic. Gilded in brown butter, flavours intensify with the addition of rich blue cheese, highlighting the beautiful intricacy of both potatoes and cheese.

1 hr 4 servings
Cheesy Starchy


  • 1 kg waxy potatoes, washed, peeled, very thinly sliced and patted dry
  • 150 g butter, melted
  • 75 g Castello® Creamy Blue cut into small cubes
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 160ºC. Generously grease the bottom of an ovenproof pan or baking dish with 30 g of melted butter. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add remaining butter and cheese cubes. Stir until cheese melts. Arrange potato slices in the pan overlapping each other, brushing with butter/cheese mixture. Season with salt and pepper as you go. Cover with greaseproof paper or lid and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Test with a skewer to see if potatoes are tender.

At this point, serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use. If preparing in advance, turn pommes out of the pan and with a sharp knife, cut into desired pieces. Warm in a 160ºC oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
