“This recipe is by a Canadian chef who I really like - Michael Smith. It contains only 3 ingredients (plus S & P!) and it's gorgeous to look at! Easy to make and would be great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. It's not the healthiest thing to eat - it's just good ol' comfort food. It takes a long time to cook, so plan ahead. Enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a 6-inch non-stick fry pan with bacon slices, arranging them in a radial pattern and starting with one end of bacon in the centre of the pan and the other end draped over the edge. When the entire surface of the pan has been covered, sprinkle with pepper and add a layer of sliced potatoes to cover the bottom. Sprinkle with grated cheese, salt and pepper and repeat layers until they are slightly above the top of the pan.
  3. Fold the bacon, one slice at a time up and over the potato mound toward the centre. Carefully overlap each slice and repeat until the top is completely and neatly covered with bacon. Press down and cover with a lid.
  4. Place tart on a baking sheet, which will catch any drips during cooking. Bake for 3 hours. It has to cook low and slow so the potatoes cook and the bacon doesn't burn. The lid will eventually come down and sit on the pan as the food cooks.
  5. Turn pan over and invert tart onto a serving plate. Cut into 6 slices.
