Ingredients

  • 650g baby new potato
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots , thinly sliced
  • 200g thick smoked bacon rashers, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 170ml pot double cream
  • 100g cheddar or gruyère or a mix of both, grated
  • handful rocket , plus your favourite salad dressing, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Boil the potatoes for 10-12 mins until almost tender.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the shallots and bacon until the shallots have softened. Beat the eggs, milk and cream with some seasoning.

  • STEP 3

    Slice the potatoes thickly – you can skin them first if you like – and place in a large, shallow ovenproof dish.

  • STEP 4

    Scatter over the bacon and shallots, then pour over the egg mixture and scatter on the cheese. Bake for 25-30 mins until set. Serve topped with dressed rocket.
