We had some friends for dinner on Saturday night and we had a BBQ with salads.  Here in Victoria where we live, the evenings can get really chilly right through summer and it was chilly last night, so I made a delicious hot potato dish to serve with our meat and salads.

This is a dish you wouldn’t want to eat every night but for special occasions it is great.


  • 2.5 kg potatoes – I used the small washed potatoes
  • 250 grams bacon
  • 2 large leeks
  • 600 ml cream
  • 500 grams grated tasty cheese
  • olive oil spray


Pre-boil potatoes, while potatoes are cooking cut up and fry the bacon and leeks together.

Cut potatoes in half or quarters and place in the casserole dish sprayed with olive oil spray.  Tip in the bacon and leeks when cooked and mix together a bit.

Pour over the cream and place cheese on top.  Bake in moderate oven until golden and brown – about 45 mins.

This was absolutely delicious and our guests really enjoyed it – I hope you do too.

  1. Sounds delicious to me – sometimes you just need that comfort food! I am in Victoria too, and we are having that typical November weather; 17 one day, 33 the next! Hubby has already been to two fires this season; think it will be a hot,dry summer.

    1. Wow where about in Victoria are you, we are in the west? We are still quite green around us but I am sure it wont take long to dry off (it has already started). It is cooler here today which is a nice change but yes I think it will be a hot summer, the good side of this is maybe our tomatoes will grow this year. Comfort food is great, I really enjoy meaty, hearty casseroles. Blessings
