BAKED CHEESEY CHIPS WITH BACON

Perfect Friday night comfort food. Why not try out our baked cheesey chips with some Jolly Good Bacon added in!

Ingredients

– 4 large baking potatoes
– salt
– 80g butter
– 80g plain flour
– 800ml whole milk
– 80g cheddar cheese
– 1 pack jolly hog bacon
– 1 handful of breadcrumbs

Method

1. Bring a large pan of salted water to boil. Chop your baking potatoes in to half and then each half in to 4 so you have thick chip-size pieces. Parboil your potato chips for 6 minutes and then drain in a colander. Leave to steam dry for 3 minutes before pouring in to a large baking tin (approx 30cm x 30cm).

2. Chop up your jolly hog bacon in to small cubes and get a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Go in with your bacon and fry until crispy, adding your breadcrumbs in for the last few minutes to crisp up.

3. Next make your cheese sauce, place your butter and flour in a medium sauce pan over a medium heat, whisk together to make a rue. Slowly start pouring in your milk, whisking continuously until it has all come together and thickened. Stir in your cheese and pour the sauce over your potato chips and then scatter over your bacon and breadcrumbs.

4. Bake in the oven (180-200) for 45 minutes or until bubbling and crisp on top.

Eat hot!
