Potato Bake Recipe

Most of us have a favourite version of this popular dish and I have several that I make. This recipe was given to me by Sonia, whom I work with. She served this up at a recent barbecue at her place and it was so yummy that we were headed back for seconds. Be warned, it is not for the fainthearted. It is quite rich but definitely worth the calorie intake. Try this and I know you will keep making it over and over again, especially when having casual dinner parties and barbecues. Sonia just makes it up to suit the amount of people she needs to serve. I have worked out approx what you would need to serve 6 people, but that would depend on how many helpings they go for.


4 large potatoes - peeled and thinly sliced
3 rashers of bacon - diced
1 large brown onion - thinly sliced
1 pkt french onion soup
1 cup grated tasty cheese
200 ml cream
100 ml fresh milk
Sea salt and fresh grounded black pepper to taste.


Preheat oven to 180C in a fan forced oven.
Lightly grease a large rectangle oven dish.
Place a layer of potatoes in the bottom, then a layer of bacon and onions and a sprinkling of the french onion soup. Continue layering until you finish with a layer of potatoes.
Mix the cream and milk together and pour over.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top then a light sprinkling of sweet paprika over this.
Place in an oven and bake for about 1 hour or until potatoes are cooked through.
