Cheese and bacon potato bake

The ladies at Club LOVE this indulgent dish. It's not exactly great for the waistline but sometimes you need to treat yourself. It makes a great side, but is just as good paired with a simple green salad.


1 onion, finely sliced into rings
1kg potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
150g cheese, grated
1 pack bacon, diced
20ml milk
Garlic, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 200ºC.
2. Line a 23cm saucepan with tinfoil. Greases the tinfoil with a little butter.
3. Melt 75g butter in another small saucepan, add garlic and bacon and cook until done.
4. Place a layer of potato in the base of the lined saucepan, followed by layers of onion, a little of the melted butter and bacon and grated cheese.
5. Repeat the layers until you have used up all the ingredients, finishing with potato and keeping a little melted butter to drizzle on top at the end.  Season the layers as you go.
6. Spoon milk over the top and bake for one hour or until the top is golden brown and the potatoes are tender. If the top is over-browning before the potatoes are done, cover with foil.
Cool for 10 minutes before serving. Peel off the tinfoil and transer to a plate to slice. Serve with a side salad.
