  • Add a layer of half the potato slices, then another of half the onion.

  • Put half the remaining bacon on top and 4 more sage leaves.
  • use the remaining potatoes and onion in the same way, pour in the remaining cream, then put the remaining bacon and sage on top.
  • Dot the sage with the rest of the butter.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Cover the dish with foil and bake for a further 30 minutes.
