This recipe was shared with me by a friend and I would make it very often for my son when he was a teenager. This is certain to be a hit with every hungry teenager and it is quick as easy to make. It makes a hearty meal because of the meat, potatoes and cheese, and it is easier to make than ordering takeout.
Streaky bacon 200 g
Potatoes 3 medium, sliced
Mushrooms 1 cup, sliced
Oil 1 tbsp
Italian herbs 2 tbsps
Cheddar cheese 2 cups, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Snip the bacon roughly with a pair or scissors to 1” pieces and add it along with the mushrooms to heated oil in a frying pan. Fry till the mushrooms are brown and the bacon is cooked.
In a baking tray, pour a tablespoon of bacon grease. Arrange a layer of potato slices. Add a layer of the bacon and mushroom mixture. Add a layer of overlapping potato slices. Sprinkle a layer of cheese and Italian herbs. Add another layer of potatoes.
Repeat the layers again. Finish with a thick layer of cheese.
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste and herbs.
Bake in a 180 degree C oven for 20 minutes till the cheese is bubbling.
Rest for 10 minutes and serve with a green salad.
