COOKING EQUIPMENT
1 baking dish

You need floury potatoes for this recipe namely Estima, King Edwards, Maris Piper or Desiree; they are all available from supermarkets.

Heat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6.

Method for Cheesy Potatoes with Bacon

Dice the potatoes into chunks of about inch.  Boil them in a large pan for 5 minutes, drain and put back into the pan.

Boiling diced potatoes

 
Potatoes, bacon and onions Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the chopped onions and cook till soft for about 5 minutes.  Mix in the bacon and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Mix the bacon and onions into the pan with the potatoes.

Stir in the cream, wine and most of the cheese add a little paprika and mix well.

 
Put into the baking dish, spreading it out evenly, then sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese.  Cover with silver foil and put in the oven for 25 minutes. 

 

Grated cheese

 
Baked cheesy potatoes Remove the foil and sprinkle with a little more paprika and cook for a further 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

 
Serve with crusty warm bread, they'll certainly come back for more.

You can make this with any traditional semi-soft Swiss cheese which is good for melting, i.e. Raclette, reblochon or taleggio if you can source it in the  supermarkets.
