Mermaids` Makings

Around the World in 12 Dishes- New Zealand


We are on our way  around the world again and this time we landed in New Zealand.

When searching for recipes I sometimes end up with ones that I know my lil picky eater wouldn`t eat anyway.. but as she loves helping me in the kitchen we still spend some useful time together, because whilst cooking she often tries some new ingredients. But this time I found a prefect recipe that the whole family enjoyed. I needed something easy and non expensive.. so here it is:

Potato and Bacon Bake

All you need is:

milk- 350ml

6 garlic gloves

1 tsp salt

cheese, grated- 100 g

2kg potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

1 tbsp- olive oil

4 eggs, beaten

4 pieces bakon, finely diced

chives, chopped

And here is what you do:

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Mix the eggs, milk, garlic, salt, bacon and 3 tbsp chopped chives. Reserve. Oil a 20 cm square ovenproof dish.

Layer one third of potatoes evenly into the dish and pour over one third of the egg mixture then  repeat with the remaining two-thirds of the potatoes and egg mixture.

Sprinkle the cheese evenly on top.

Cover loosely with foil and place in the oven for about 45 minutes.

Uncover and bake a further 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender and everything is bubbling and golden.

Remove from the oven and serve as a side with roast chicken

or steak or as a meal in itself with salad.
