• 100g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 100g smoked bacon, cut into lardons
  • 2kg large potatoes, thinly sliced (a mandolin is ideal)
  • 300g white onions, finely sliced
  • 500ml fresh chicken stock


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and grease a large casserole dish. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Toss in the bacon and season really well. Cook until golden and crisp, about 5 mins.

  • STEP 2

    In a large bowl, gently mix the potatoes with the onions, bacon and some more seasoning. Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish and pat it all down, pouring over the stock.

  • STEP 3

    Bake in the centre of the oven for 1 hr 45 mins, covering the potatoes after an hour to stop them getting too dark. You should be able to push a knife through the potatoes with little resistance when the dish is cooked.
