Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Slice the potatoes (skins on) into discs

Add the potato discs to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and sprinkle them with cold water (this will help the potatoes cook through!)

Put the tray in the oven for 15-20 min or until softened

2

While the potatoes are cooking, peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Chop the smoked streaky bacon roughly

3

Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped bacon and diced onion and cook for 4-5 min, stirring occasionally, until golden and crisp

Once crisp, add the chopped garlic and cook for 1-2 min further or until fragrant

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese

4

Once fragrant, add the Chinese rice wine to the pan and cook for 30 secs

Add 1 tsp [2 tsp] flour and give it all a good mix up

Gradually add 150ml [300ml] milk, a little at a time, and stir everything together until the sauce begins to thicken slightly

5

Stir through the double cream and most of the grated cheddar cheese (save some for later!) and give it all a good mix up until the cheese has melted

Season with a generous grind of black pepper – this is your cheesy bacon sauce

6

Add half the potato discs to an oven-proof dish in a single layer

Pour over half the cheesy bacon sauce

Repeat this process until you have a final layer of sauce and top with any leftover potato discs

Sprinkle over the reserved cheese and put the dish in the oven for 15-20 min or until bubbling and golden - this is your cheesy bacon & potato gratin

7

While the gratin is in the oven, finely dice the tomato[es]

Add the diced tomato to a bowl with the rocketbalsamic vinegar, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up – this is your rocket salad
