Glen's Potato Bake

“Original recipe from Australian Women's Weekly but modified over the years. My daughter Kerri has asked me to post this here. I usually take the quicker option and do the covered cooking in the microwave, covering with cling wrap. I've never heated the cream first and these days I substitute with skim evaporated milk and light cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 kg potato, peeled & sliced thinly
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 200 -300 ml cream
  • 12-34 cup cheese, shredded (amount depends on size of dish)


  1. Put a layer of potato in a greased ovenproof dish (I use a large shallow dish); sprinkle with salt & pepper, then layer some onion slices over potato.
  2. Heat cream over medium heat and spoon approximately 1/4 cup over onion slices.
  3. Continue in layers of potato, salt & pepper, onion and cream, finishing with potato.
  4. Sprinkle cheese over and bake covered with greased foil in a moderate oven 180degC (350degC) for 30 minutes; remove foil and cook for a further 45 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown and cheese crunchy.
