Bacon & Potato Layer Bake is layers of sliced potato, bacon, tomato, onion and cheese baked with chicken stock. So simple and delicious, comfort food I grew up with!
NB: I have brought my Bacon & Potato Layer Bake recipe up to date with some better photographs as its so popular and deserved better. Enjoy!
Bacon & Potato Layer Bake is another dish that I grew up eating, it’s totally yummy and a great hit with the whole family.
Over the years I’ve tweaked the method as the potatoes always had a habit of not cooking and having to spend longer in the oven.
To get round this problem I now par boil the potato slices at the beginning. Plus the addition of chicken stock helps by providing moisture and steam during the cooking process as well as making the dish even tastier!
We love this bacon bake with just a simple serving of petite pois and a dollop of ketchup, comfort food at its best!
