    Shannon Cooks's Note:

    This dish proves that simple comfort food can be elegant. It's a scrumptious potato casserole layered with mock chicken, mock bacon and a basic herby white sauce. I've created the recipe for vegetarian sensibilities with the use of mock meat products, but if you are a carnivore, there's no need to miss out: simply substitute real bacon slices and 300g real chicken breast pieces. I do encourage you to go the vegetarian route with this dish, though - it's healthier and lower in fat and I swear nobody will know the difference!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 medium potatoes, pared & thinly sliced
    • 2 cups vegetable broth
    • 4 slices mock crispy-style imitation bacon (Morningstar Farms brand)
    • 1 (300 g) package frozen quorn pieces (the chicken stir fry ones)
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 3 tablespoons flour
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 teaspoon herbes de provence
    • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • salt and pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      In medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, heat broth to a boil; reduce heat. Add potatoes; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until fork tender. Drain, reserving broth.
    2. 2
      Prepare bacon strips and chicken pieces according to package directions. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In another saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat and blend in flour. Gradually add reserved broth, water and milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and add the Herbes de Provence, salt and pepper. Cook until sauce reduces to a spoon-coating consistency. Don’t let it get too thick. Remove from heat and stir in mozzarella cheese until melted.
    4. 4

      I made this again last night. I added broccoli this time and did it all the same as last time. Strangely I didnt need to add extra flour this time. I couldnt find the herbs so used a little seasoning in the water/milk mixture. I also added extra mozzarella to the top. I took a photo and added it, as I thought it looked REALLY good!
      Everyone loved it! Thanks again! 5 stars!

      I wish I could give more stars, this was outstanding! I used sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. And the recipe didn't specify anything about the onion other than in the layering directions. I used half an onion, cut into rings and boiled it with the potatoes. The Morningstar bacon added a lot of flavor, I think it would be just as good with or without the Quorn. Thanks Shannon W. for a wonderful dish!
