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.

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

Add a layer of grated tasty cheese

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.


Alternatives:
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. 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.
