to serve 4:

How to Cook Potatoes with Cheese and Bacon

  1. Peel the potatoes and slice them about ¼" (0.5cm) thick. Cut the bacon into thin strips, grate (shred) the cheese, peel and crush (mince) the garlic and chop the parsley.
  2. Heat the fat in a frying pan and fry the bacon strips until they are crisp and golden. Arrange potato slices so that they form a layer at the bottom of a greased oven-proof dish. Sprinkle over some grated cheese and a few cooked bacon strips. Add a twist of freshly-ground pepper. Continue making further layers until you have used all the potato, bacon and cheese then sprinkle the top with the garlic and parsley.
  3. Cover the dish with a lid and cook in the middle of a preheated moderate oven Mk 5 - 375ºF - 190ºC for about 45 - 50 minutes. Remove from the oven, pour over the cream, cover and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes then serve immediately.

If you're not sure that your potatoes are cooked, simply try one before adding the cream! If they need further cooking, leave in the oven a little longer.

Reviews of Potatoes with Cheese and Bacon

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again April 06 2015
First I have to say - I had to try this recipe after I was disappointed by a similar appetizer at Smokey Bones restaurant. Wow... this recipe went above and beyond my expectations. And so easy to make as well! I was afraid they would be sub par since they are not fried but that was not the case. Much better than anything I've had in a restaurant as well. I salt & peppered the potato slices before baking. I turned the oven off when I pulled the slices out to top them - the retained heat in the oven was adequate to warm the cream. Just be careful not to slice the potatoes too thin - I had a couple that were much thinner than the rest turn into crispy potato chips!
