If you’re looking for the perfect potato side dish, this Easy Cheesy Potato Bake recipe has you covered. Meltingly tender, creamy scalloped potatoes laced with bacon, thyme and cheese all baked in a comforting sauce.

Easy Cheese Potato bake – it’s like a loaded version of scalloped potatoes. Thin slices of potato baked in a creamy sauce but with added bacon and a good helping of cheese. It’s easy, creamy and totally irresistible.

Why you’ll love it

Yes, even though everything is made from scratch (no canned soups here), these cheesy scalloped potatoes are easy to make and can be reheated in the oven in less than half an hour.

OUR METHOD:

  1. Peel and slice the potatoes to about 3-4mm thick. Add them to a pan of water, bring it to the boil, then cook for just 2 minutes (photo 1) before draining. Don’t cook them too long or they’ll fall apart when you drop them into the casserole dish.
  2. You can use the same pan for the sauce. Start by sautéing some bacon pieces just until they start to brown.
  3. Add spring onions and garlic (photo 2) and saute for about a minute before adding butter and flour (photo 3).
  4. Add stock, cream, milk, thyme and seasoning (photo 4) and cook, stirring until it thickens and starts to bubble then a little cheese (photo 5).
  5. Layer up your potato bake in a casserole dish (photo 6). Start with a good spoonful of the sauce, then layer potatoes, sauce, cheese, finishing with cheese on top.

That’s it. Just 3 layers and the sauce will seep down through all the gaps and thickens up more in the oven. It bakes for 45-50 minutes, then a few minutes under a grill / broiler to brown up the top if it needs it.
