The Ultimate Potato Bake
Deliciously crispy, custardy and moreish, this is my ultimate potato bake recipe. Enjoy it as a side dish or scoff it down on its own, the choice is yours!
I give you the ultimate potato bake. To maximise the crispy top (let’s be honest it’s the best part!), we arrange the potato slices vertically. To that, add piles of smoked cheese and caramelised leeks and onions. The result is a total showstopper! Featuring a custardy centre and super crispy top; the filling is perfumed by the wonderful flavours of bay, nutmeg, smoked cheese and onions.
This potato bake is the perfect pairing to any main, but we particularly love it for a braai. The smoky notes of the meat play wonderfully with the potato bake!
