  • 850 g Potatoes finely sliced
  • 1 pack Smoked back bacon (6 – 8 rashers), fat removed
  • 1 Onion finely sliced
  • 150 g Cheddar cheese grated
  • 3 Tomatoes sliced
  • 200 mls Chicken Stock
  • 30 g Butter approximately


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease a large casserole dish.
  3. Bring a large pan of water to boil and boil the potato slices for 6 minutes and then drain.
  4. Fry the bacon rashers until just cooked.
  5. Place alternate layers of potato, onion, bacon, tomato, grated cheese, seasoning and about 7 small knobs of butter (should make 2 layers).
  6. Finish with a layer of potato and grated cheese flecked with more butter.
  7. Finally pour hot chicken stock over the potatoes.
  8. Cover with foil (shiny side down) or a lid and cook for an hour (or until tender).
  9. Remove foil or lid and cook for a further 10 minutes to allow the cheese to brown.
