Cheesy Potato and Bacon Bake {Recipe}

Potato bake is a family favourite. It’s comfort food at it’s best.

It is a dish which I make, that I know BOTH of my children will eat.

I like to mix it up a little bit each time. Sometimes I add chorizo or sweet potato.
And sometimes, the original is the best.

Peel and slice potato thinly
In the bottom of the dish add a layer of the thinly sliced potato

Cover the dish and cook in the microwave for approximately 10 minutes (or until cooked).

Add a layer of grated tasty cheese

Cheesy Potato & Bacon Bake

Bake in the oven or under the grill until the cheese is melted and delicious (I like mine a little bit crunchy on the edges).

Serve as a side dish… or if you’re like my daughter, eat it as a main dish.

Replace the bacon with chorizo or ham
Add alternate layers of sweet potato
Instead of onion, use leek or spring onions (soooo good!)

Bon Appetit

  1. thankyou for this recipe Anorina,i certainly will be making this.xx

    1. I hope you like it. It's so yummy and best made in a small dish (otherwise it's easy to eat too much).

  2. I make mine with evaporated milk so I don't feel so guilty about eating the entire thing myself, hiding on the laundry.
