As Australia Day approaches next week, I’m planning some side dishes to have with our family BBQ at home and I’ll be making this ‘Creamy Potato Bake’ on the day.  I use a Mandolin Slicer as I can’t slice potatoes consistently, which can then result in undercooked potato in your bake. If you have one with a safety guard, you can get the kids to help. Mine love helping slice the potatoes.

I’ve made potato bakes over the years where I have partly cooked the potatoes which I then layered evenly into the casserole dish, but the beauty of this bake is that it’s rustic and fuss free so just pour the potato mixture from the bowl into the casserole dish, then top with grated cheese.

Noms, that cheese looks so good, but so naughty. I made it recently and it’s the most deliciously creamy potato bake ever! That’s why I’m calling it my No-Fail Creamy Potato Bake. You will have to try it for yourself, but I find that the thickened cream and sour cream together give it that perfect balance between a thick, yet smooth sauce to cover your potatoes with, before baking it with all that naughty grated cheese.

I cover the dish with alfoil before I add the cheese, when its cooked through I add the cheese and cook until it’s browned.

What type of grated “tasty” cheese did you use?

In Australia what we call tasty cheese is cheddar cheese 🙂

Dear Organised Housewife,
My wife and I are making this potato bake now as a side to our Christmas lunch.
The instructions don’t mention what to do with the diced bacon once cooked.
I just put it in the bowl with the creams & cheese.
Looks good – thanks & Merry Christmas.

Hi. How long do you bake it in the over for?
Thanks

I pop mine in for 10-15 minutes until the cheese browns. Every oven is different though, so just make sure you keep an eye on it the first time you make it. Enjoy!

Absolutely delicious!! I made two batches of this for a work BBQ (one without bacon but added shallots for the vegetarians among us) and they were both a big hit. Have you ever prepared the mixture ahead of time, ready to pop in the oven when you need a quick dish?

Reply
Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 24, 2021 - 1:17 PM

It would be fine to prepare a day or two ahead I think. Just be mindful of the expiry dates of the ingredients you use. Don’t use cream if it’s close to it’s expiry etc Kat x

Hi Kat, I can never make this successfully so am trying your one for tea tonight…
What is thickened cream please? We may have it in NZ but have not come across it.
Thank you

Reply
Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 5, 2021 - 2:33 PM

Hi Yvonne, thickened cream is pouring/whipping cream with a thickener in it. If you don’t have that in NZ then fresh pure cream will work just as well.
