Classic Potato Bake | Stay At Home Mum


  1. Pre Heat your oven to 180 degrees C and grease a large rectangle baking dish (a large lasagne dish is perfect!).

  2. Place a layer of sliced potato evenly on the bottom of the dish, then sprinkle diced bacon or shredded ham and sliced onion over the top of the potato.

  3. Place another even layer of potato slices on top then pour the cream over the potato.

  4. Sprinkle the chopped chives or parsley and salt and pepper on, then lastly the grated cheese.

  5. Place in the oven and cook uncovered for approximately 45 to 60 mins, or until the potato is cooked and the topping is a golden brown colour.

  6. Serve as a side dish to BBQ meat with salad (or eat it on it's own!!)

  7. Potato Bake is best eaten the day it is made, but can be refrigerated for up to two days after cooking.

  8. Not suitable for freezing.
