Recipe: Potato Bake

Cooking in my oven today is a potato bake.  This is going to be taken to a Bring ‘n Braai at my good friend’s house tonight.  She just moved into a new place and this is the first time she is hosting anything for friends.  So I am taking around this dish to help out, it is a Bring ‘n Braai after all.


  • 5 large potatoes, boiled in their jackets until nearly cooked (increase the number of potatoes if the potatoes are small)
  • 250ml ( 1 cup ) cream
  • 250ml ( 1 cup ) milk
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 packet of white onion soup
  • 250ml ( 1 cup ) grated cheese (cheddar works the best)


  1. Peel the potatoes and slice into an ovenproof dish
  2. Mix remaining ingredients together, except the cheese
  3. Pour over potatoes and sprinkle with cheese
  4. Bake at 180C for about 1 hour – the cream will have set and potato bake will be golden brown.

Serve with meat cooked on an outside grill and salads OR with a roast chicken and vegetables.
