Potato Bake

Recipe by OZmark
READY IN: 1hr 20mins


  • 4 -6
    large potatoes, peeled (preferably the brushed dirty potatoes)
  • 150
    g rindless bacon, diced
  • 1
    medium onion, diced
  • 2
    cups tasty cheese, shredded
  • 400
    ml single cream, that can be poured (approx)
  • salt, to taste


  • Heat over to 180 Degrees Celcius first.
  • Peel and slice potatoes along the their length (about 3 mm thick) either on a vegetable slicer or with a knife.
  • Dice bacon and onion into small pieces. Not too fine though.
  • Layer potato into a oven proof dish (I use a pyrex one, 35cmx22cmx5cm).
  • Sprinkle part of the bacon and onion over the potatoes.
  • Repeat layers until the last of the bacon and onion are used on top, making sure that it is not filled too high as the cheese needs to cover the potato in the dish.
  • Pour in cream until it is approx half way up the side of the potato bake. Make sure that the top layer is NOT swimming in cream.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sprinkle cheese over top, achieving a nice even layer.
  • Place in oven on middle shelf and cook for approximately 1 hour, until potatoes can be pierced with a fork easily and the cheese is a beautiful golden colour.
  • This will definitely have them coming back for seconds!
