  • 1.2 kg/2.6lb floury potatoes e.g. Agria
  • 1 onion very thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup cream liquid
  • handful grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F on fan-bake.
  2. Wash and thinly slice potatoes. I like to leave the skins on, but feel free to peel them if you prefer. You can either slice the potatoes by hand or using a mandolin or food processor.
  3. Place a layer of potatoes in a baking dish, sprinkle over a little onion and garlic and season generously with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Cover with another layer of potatoes then a little onion, garlic and salt and pepper. Repeat until all the potatoes, onion and garlic are layered in the baking dish finishing with a layer of potatoes.
  4. Gently pour in cream and sprinkle over cheese and some more sea salt and fresh cracked pepper on top. Cover tightly with aluminium foil and place in the oven for 30 mins.
  5. Remove from oven and remove foil. Place back in oven and bake, uncovered for 30-40 min or until the potatoes are cooked through and crispy and golden on top. The amount of time with depend on the thickness of your potato slices and the size of your dish so check after 20 minutes uncovered.
  6. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

You can remove the potato bake from the oven after 30 minutes of covered cooking then allow to cool completely. Place the par-baked potato bake in the freezer and freeze for up to 3 months.
