I bought 2 jars of white cheese sauce to make lasagne with the other day and had enough left over to try something without wasting the rest of the sauce. I made this and it worked. It's super easy and ready in 45 mins. You can add other ingredients such as onion, leek and herbs if you wish but I just used bacon this time.


  • 3/4 jar of white cheese sauce
  • Upto 4 potatoes sliced thinly
  • 4 unsmoked bacon rashers
  • Grated Cheddar cheese
  • Grated parmesan


  • STEP 1
    Preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan)
  • STEP 2
    Peel your potatoes and slice thinly (about 1/2 cm thick)
  • STEP 3
    Cook your bacon in a frying pan to your preference.
  • STEP 4
    Layer your potatoes in a oven proof dish and cover with half of the cheese sauce, if you think there isn't enough to cover you can add a little whole milk and stir to thin it out.
  • STEP 5
    Cut up 2 bacon rashers onto your first layer randomly placing on top of the potatoes. Repeat steps 4 and 5 once more.
  • STEP 6
    Place in the oven for 20 minutes
  • STEP 7
    Remove from oven and sprinkle on the cheddar cheese and parmesan. Place back into the oven for a further 20 minutes.
  • STEP 8
    Remove from oven and serve.
