"Sunday" Morning Tatoes

Super yummy and quick, one tray/dish Sunday morning breakfast potatoes - that I cooked on a Monday. ...
1/2 bag new potatoes
1 table spoon melted butter (measure first then melt)
12 rashers bacon or 8 extra thick rashers
1/4 block of cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
If your feeling really really lazy, you can swap the new potatoes for a bag of frozen potato cubes, usually available in supermarket near the frozen chip section. I prefer new potatoes myself as more flavour.
Preheat oven gas mark 200.
1. If using new potatoes, soak in warm water and scrub off the skins using a clean scourer sponge, if being lazy and using prepared potato cubes, cook as directed on the packet, but to start with, only cook HALF the suggested time.
2. Cut the new potatoes in half and part boil for about 10 minutes.

3. Whilst the potatoes are boiling, remove and keep aside 2 rashers of bacon from you packet and dice the rest. Grate your cheese and sprinkle a bit in the bottom of an ovenproof dish. I like to use cheddar, it give sit more strong flavour.

4. Chop up the remaining bacon from the packet and also add a small amount to the cheese in the bottom of the dish. Smoked bacon tastes best, lot more flavour.

5. Drain the part boiled potatoes and transfer to the dish, on top of part of the cheese and bacon. Spoon part of the butter over the potatoes, then add the remaining cheese and bacon, before giving a good mix, adding salt and pepper to taste. I use onion salt as it crisps the potatoes nicer and gives it a bit more flavour.

(*mix it all together. ..*)

6. Place the remaining 2 rashers of bacon on top of the potato mix, and place into the oven for15mins. You will notice the top rashers of bacon will turn crispy, but the fat and juices will drip onto the potato's underneath giving more flavour. After 15mins remove from oven and give a mix again, otherwise the cheese burns on the bottom, then cook for a further 15mins 

Remove from the oven and serve! I usually cook with sausages, extra bacon and beans. I also made some bubble and squeak disks from Sundays Mothers Day vegetable leftovers. Yummmmmmmmmmy!!
