The Grape Picker's potatoes


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Combine the melted butter and garlic. Then brush the bottom of a gratin dish (or casserole) with it.
  • Lay the bacon on the base of the dish and then top with a couple of layers of potatoes. Season, drizzle with more melted butter and top with another layer of bacon and potato. Top with a generous amount of the melted butter, tightly cover with kitchen foil and cook in the oven for about 1 hour until very tender, checking after 30 mins.
  • If you like, top the dish with a layer of grated cheese and cook in the oven, uncovered, until golden.
  • Serve as an accompaniment to your favourite simple fish or meat dish.
