Do not buy
As many other reviewers have found we cooked these as per instructions and then another 15 minutes so 40 minutes in total and still they were raw. Sauce sloppy and tasteless. Agree with others not the product we had bought in the past so yes maybe different supplier. Waste of money do not buy.
The potato is literally raw; you need to cook it for twice as long as the cooking instructions tell you to. Even then, I'm not sure that I would recommend it. It's not cheap, so I would say avoid it altogether.
Ignore all the negative reviews
I cannot understand the bad reviews. This was absolutely delicious, better than a well known brand of quality frozen meals. Cooked from chilled at 190o for 35 minutes, tender potato, plenty of creamy not too-garlicky sauce and just enough cheese topping. Plenty for two of us.
I didnt recognise some of the vitriolic criticisms. We love them, if they are a little underdone after the cooking time then cook them a bit more..its not rocket science. Ann Minshull
Bland, tasteless and almost raw potato
I am sure the supplier changed last year as suddenly this dish was SO different from the product we used to buy regularly. We complained but it's still rubbish. As numerous other customers have said, the potatoes are still almost raw at the end of the cooking time and it just has no taste of garlic or anything else to be truthful and absolutely no sense of being an indulgent side. I wish Tesco would actually read these reviews as this is NOT proper potato dauphinoise, it is so disappointing and bland! PLEASE do something about it!
Get this once a month or so as a treat. But the re
Get this once a month or so as a treat. But the recent pack was definitely poor compared with the past. Less cheesy, less garlicky. Different recipe? Changed supplier? I would rather you put the price up than cut costs.

Absolutely vile. I don’t know why they even put it
Absolutely vile. I don’t know why they even put it on the shelf, what a waste.
Needs an hour at 200 degs
Can’t believe Tesco haven’t sorted out the packaging ref cooking time. It needs a good HOUR at 200 degs to be cooked. Once this is done the dish is nice enough. Poor show on Tesco QAQC though, think they’d have a system for monitoring these comments.
Only gave 1 star as minus numbers not possible.. Hi Do you like eating raw potato? Do you like spending days looking through the door of your oven? Do you like to eat your meal in stages, eg having the potato 3 years after you’ve eaten???? If YES, then this product is for you!!!!! I loved the uncertainty of thinking “I’ve cooked it as per the label, but should I post it to Chernobyl for the final phase of cooking”. I particularly loved, how at the time specified, it would be ready, it was still raw, in fact I think it was still in the ground. I don’t mean to sound horrible but how bad is it that Tesco can duck up a spud. In summary if you like raw tasteless spuds that takes 5 weeks to cook, then buy this!
