Author Notes: I love potato dauphinoise...the sound of it, very posh sounding. and if you can have it with tatties, then beetroots are a logical alternative...me thinks!Kitchen Butterfly

This was lovely. I think though that the butter could be reduced, and I used more garlic. I used sage as I had no thyme, but the majority flavor is the garlic, butter, and beet. Yum
