1hr 25 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 large SPAR Freshline Potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 sprig SPAR Freshline Rosemary
  • 2 cups (185g) SPAR cheddar cheese, grated
  • 330g SPAR Freshline Cheese & Onion Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Layer the sliced potatoes in a large ovenproof dish. Sprinkle ½ cup of the cheese in between the layered potatoes.Combine the cream, rosemary, 1 cup of grated cheese, and the salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to mix.
  2. Pour the cream mixture evenly over the sliced potatoes. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 1 hour.

  4. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the garlic bread layer and bake uncovered for a further 20 minutes, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  5. Once baked, leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
