potato bake


  • 1 large jacket potato, microwaved or baked, then cooled

  • 75g chopped, cooked ham (tinned ham could also be used)

  • 1 small tin chopped tomatoes, drained (use the juice in a soup recipe or add to stews or casseroles)

  • 150g tub fromage frais

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 egg

  • 50g grated Cheddar cheese


  • Set the oven to 190oC or Gas 5

  • Cut the cooled potato into 1cm cubes/pieces

  • Cut the ham into 1cm cubes/pieces

  • Put a layer of potato in an oven-proof dish

  • Add a layer of ham, and then tomatoes. Repeat these layers

  • In a basin, mix together the fromage frais, egg, salt and pepper

  • Pour the fromage frais mixture over the ingredients in the ovenproof dish, and sprinkle the grated cheese on the top

  • Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbling

Tasty Tips:
- Any kind of cheese will work, but try to use one with a strong flavour
- Add a teaspoonful of mustard to the egg mixture
- Add a layer of leftover cooked vegetables to the pie dish before you pour over the topping
