  • 8 medium potatoes
  • 1 onion

Method of Preparation:

  3. Meanwhile, cook the onion in a little of the butter until very soft and sweet, around 15 minutes.

  4. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them and mash them with the onion, the rest of the butter and the milk until smooth and creamy. Season well and then fold in 2/3 of the cheese.

  5. Smooth the mixture into a baking dish and then cover it with the rest of the cheese.

  6. Bake at 180C for around 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and turned golden.

Garnish this with bacon for a tasty twist on the meal. This dish serves four people.
