Thank You Pauline for posting this, I searched and couldn’t find it again (Spelt it wrong hahaha..) Absolutely stunning and quite a basic side dish, it went well with my slow cooked Lemon Honey Drumsticks wrapped in Bacon (a variant to your recipe..), Yum, Deffo on the menu again thanks

My 3 very fussy monsters loved it. I added mushrooms and onion to mine and I think next time I will add some garlic and herbs as well, because I found it alittle plan for my liking. However all in all it was easy to put together and cook and the monsters loved it so that’s a win in my books

Yummy recipe, very easy.
Used left over Xmas ham instead of bacon, added 1tbsp dried chives.
These are very tasty & filling too!

The trick to this is the place a wooden spoon each side of the potato so you don’t cut all the way through – the knife stops when it hits the wooden spoon. I then pulled out every 2nd slice of potato so there was a larger gap for the bacon & cheese. And then I just put the spare pieces of potato on the top and cooked it along with the dish.
This is a fantastic side dish and we thoroughly enjoyed it
