Who loves a good potato bake? I know I do, I could quite happily sit down to just a bowl of this divine potato bake for dinner, yep, I love carbs and to me the best carb is potato!
This is an easy potato bake, in that you par boil the potatoes first, dramatically cutting down the cooking time, then you just pop all the other ingredients into a jug, microwave for 2 minutes and pour over par boiled drained and dried potatoes, sprinkle over cheese and bung it in the oven and cook for 25 minutes at 180 C. And voila soft, fluffy and delicious Potato Bake.
|Ingredients for Creamy Potato Bake with Spring Onions and Cheese|
|Peel and cut potatoes into 2 cm dice|
|Cover with cold water and bring to a gentle simmer, then turn heat down to low and let simmer away for about 10 minutes. You want soft pieces of potato but still holding their shape|
|Grate garlic on a microplane and finely slice the spring onions|
|In a jug combine the cream, garlic and shallots|
|Give it a good stir|
|Drain potato really well. I do this by first draining the potato in a colander and then returning potato to the pan, putting it back on the heat and gently agitation the pan to "steam" the potato|
|Put the light, fluffy and dry potato in a low profile casserole dish|
|In a microwave, heat combined cream mixture for 1 and a half to 2 minutes|
|Pour warm cream mixture over potatoes and sprinkle with grated cheese|
