Cheesey Potato Bake

A rich, creamy, cheesey potato bake - so easy!


  • 4-6 medium-large potatoes

  • 300ml cream

  • 150ml full cream milk

  • 200g sliced extra matured vintage cheddar

  • salt & pepper


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180DegC.

  • 2.

    Peel the potatoes and slice thinly.

  • 3.

    Mix the cream and milk together.

  • 4.

    Drizzle approx 100ml in the bottom of an ovenproof, deep sided dish or pan.

  • 5.

    (Ensure that the size of the dish is commensurate with the volume of potatoes - you want the container reasonably full of potato/cheese/cream mixture)

  • 6.

    Layer the sliced potatoes into the dish, making the bottom layer 2 layers of potatoes thick.

  • 7.

    Place sliced cheese over top of potatoes & season with a little salt and pepper.

  • 8.

    Add another layer of potatoes, top with more cheese and lightly season.

  • 9.

    Continue until potatoes are all used, ending with a layer of cheese.

  • 10.

    Carefully pour the remaining cream/milk mixture over the potatoes and cheese - leave approx 2cm from the top of the pan to prevent bubbling over.

  • 11.

    Bake for approximately 45 minutes (depending on thickness of slices/volume of potatoes/diameter of the baking dish) check after 30 minutes.


If you're in a screaming hurry, use a microwave safe/standard oven safe dish (corningware is ideal) you can nuke the bake for about 10 minutes and follow up with an additional 10 minutes in a very hot oven (200DegC) to brown.
For a variation, add crumbled fried or grilled bacon between each layer.
Also works extremely well with orange sweet potato, though I tend to just use cream/milk and no cheese as the sweet potato is rich and tasty enough without it.
