It’s been a while since I posted a recipe.
If you are as bored with French fries and baked or mashed potato as I am, but you love potatoes, like I do, then is definitely for you.
Fish and Chips, steak and chips, chicken and chips.
Bangers and mash, braised chops and mash, mixed grill with baked potato.
The list is endless.

Try this delicious caramelised onion and mushroom potato bake for a change.
It adds a whole new dimension to those same meals.

30 ml olive oil
2 onions and six mushrooms, cut into thin rounds
30 ml balsamic vinegar
30 ml brown sugar
6 large potatoes, peeled and cut into thin slices
4 salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
500 ml cream
250 ml Parmesan or pecorino shavings

Oven temperature: 220°C
1. Preheat the oven. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions over a medium heat until soft and glossy. Add the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and stir-fry for 3minutes or until the onions begin to caramelise. Add mushrooms and stirfry for another minute.
2. Arrange a layer of potato slices in a greased, ovenproof dish (approximately 32 x 21cm), season with salt and black pepper and arrange a layer of caramelised onions and mushrooms on top. Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes and onions/mishrooms and end with a layer of potato slices. Pour the cream over, sprinkle the Parmesan or pecorino shavings on top and bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked. Cut into portions and serve.
