Irishmans Dreamy creamy Spuds

This is a variation on the potato bake, the addition of thyme sprigs making it a little more irish. it's my irish husbands favourite dish so gets cooked reguarly in this house. Very easy, once made, just pop in the oven and leave them to cook.


  • 300ml cream

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 and half kilos spuds (approx) - peeled and sliced

  • 2 onions peeled and slice

  • 3/4 cup of grated or shredded cheddar

  • few sprigs thyme

  • salt and pepper


  • 1.

    Grease baking dish, layer spuds and onions in dish putting thyme sprigs through the layers. pour on milk and cream, season with salt and pepper. sprinkle with cheese.

  • 2.

    Bake at 170 celsius for an hour and a half, cover with foil for the first hour then remove to make the top nice and crispy


gorgeous served with corned beef and cabbage (very irish) or just with a nice juicy steak

Excellent. Next time I will add more than 2 thyme sprigs as it gave a lovely fresh taste to the potato bake.
