Potato Bake

Another tried and tested recipe I always go back to time and time again. Potato and sour cream - enough said. The other bits are just little extras ; )

1kg potato
1 large onion
4-6 rashers of bacon (diced)
300ml sour cream
salt & pepper
1 cup grated tasty cheese
(the cup of cheese will depend on how wide your dish is. I used a big roasting pan so ended up needing 2 cups of cheese to cover it all but if you use a smaller dish, but deeper, you should get away with a lot less cheese)
Cook and drain spuds
Cook the bacon and onion in a frying pan with a dash of oil

Pour the spuds, bacon and onion in the roasting pan/dish.
Add the sour cream, salt & pepper and mix it all really well
Spread the cheese over the top evenly

Bake for about 20mins at 180 degrees.
Or if you are in a rush, just grill it till the cheese is melted and golden brown
And what did we have the potato bake with this time?
Dad's roast chicken

And the rear view
