Creamy Potato Bake

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

My husbands favourite accompaniment to a BBQ is good creamy potato bake and I must admit I do love it too!

Slice potato thin to ensure it cooks well.  Layer half the potato into a baking dish, sprinkle over onion and bacon pieces.

Layer with remaining potato slices.  Mix cream, milk and stock powder in bowl, pour over potato bake, then sprinkle with grated cheese.

I’m such a fiend for potato bake! I usually make a small one because I can’t be trusted around it 😉

It’s pretty hard to beat a potato bake! I have tried over and over and can never beat my Mum’s. Next I’m going to try your recipe… I think it just may knock Mum off the potato bake queen perch!

I use carnation milk for lower fat

Will this work out okay using lactose free light thickened cream and lactose free low fat milk?

I haven’t tried it sorry Rebecca, but if you try it let me know! I can’t imagine it would make much of a difference if they’re the same consistency as regular milk and cream 🙂
