What to do with a potato and some leftovers

Lucy my lovely, just read your twitter comment! I may just have the answer to your snowbound prayers:

1. Preheat the oven to 180.
2. Peel 4 potatoes and slice very thinly
3. Do the same with 2 onions
4. Grate or chop any cheese you have
5. Layer up in an ovenproof bowl
6. Add 1/2 pint water, stock or milk, seasoned with salt, pepper and thyme
7. Cook for 45 minutes, putting a piece of foil on top if you don't want the top to go too brown.

Enjoy with cold meats, sausages, or on its own with HP sauce.


  1. Great minds think alike! I have quite a few of Mum's recipes now and I made Northumbrian Pan Haggerty which is almost identical to your suggestion, and just ate the chocolate later, curled up with a book in front of the fire!! x

  2. Some mouth watering recipes. can you tell me about florentine hors d'oeuvres.

  3. I'm not sure about Florentine Hors D'Oeuvres... we will investigate and get back to you!
    Thanks for your inquiry!
