Oakhill Potato

Its one of Chris' favourites...

6 potatoes, peeled, chopped and boiled
4-5 rashers of bacon
1 Onion, chopped
(optional) grated carrot and grated courgette
1 cup milk
30g butter
1/2 to a cup of grated cheese
3Tbsp flour
salt and pepper
3 hard boiled eggs, sliced

Heat oil in pan, add onion and bacon. Brown. Add courgette and carrot and cook.

Place cooked potatoes in an oven proof dish. Add the above bacon mixture on top and then on top of that, place the egg slices.

And then we make the cheese sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan and then remove from heat.

Add flour and mix. Add milk and return to the heat while mixing.

When sauce mixture reaches the right consistency, add cheese and stir.

Pour cheese sauce mixture over the oven proof dish and top with breadcrumbs.

Place in oven at 180 degrees or so for 20 minutes and grill the top if necessary.
