This dish is a delight for those of us who love potatoes in whatever form, and love cheese too. This is quite a rich dish, boiling potatoes in butter, milk/cream then bake with cheese and breadcrumbs. Ooh the lusciousness and decadence of it all is what makes it a great comfort food, but also a dish you do not make every other day as it is quite rich.
Slice your potatoes thinly. Grease your baking dish with a little butter and set aside.
Let the mixture simmer gently for about eight to ten minutes, the potatoes will soften a bit but be keen so it doesn’t burn at the bottom.
At this time you can also preheat your oven at 160°C.
Set aside a bit of the cheese for later.
In a small bowl, mix the cheese you set aside with some seasoned breadcrumbs, about 2 tbsp. Sprinkle this on the potato mixture and return to oven at top rack and let broil for about 10 minutes.
So, what are your waiting for? Try it and enjoy this decadent creamy and cheesy awesomeness with your family.
