Aunty Rosemary’s Cheesy Potato Bake

This is my ultimate comfort food. It is so, so yummy but so, so bad! Shortly after I got married my great aunt gave me a similar recipe to this to try for my husband. I’d told her how he just eats meat, meat and more meat but she was adamant he would love this – and he did!

I try to use the bacon lardons when I can as they make it even yummier but they are so hard to get now so bacon will do if you can’t get the lardons. This recipe has enough for four people however we often just gorb it between us both (hence its really, really bad!!). Definitely play around with the amount of garlic you put in. We love it reaalllyyy garlicky so the more the better! 

Enjoy! And remember to tag TBB in any pics if you try it!
