Parmesan and spring onion potato bake

Serves: 8 - 10
Cooking Time: 1 hr 40 mins


  • 8 large potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 750ml (3 cups) fresh cream
  • 500ml (2 cups) Parmesan, freshly grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste



Preheat the oven to 160°C.


Place a layer of potato slices in a large, flat dish. On top of the first layer of potatoes, spread a layer of spring onions, cream, Parmesan and seasoning, then another layer of potatoes, and so on, ending with a layer of potatoes topped only with cream and Parmesan.


Bake for about 1 hour 30 minutes, checking that it doesn’t boil or the cream will split – if necessary, turn the oven down and increase the cooking time. Serve immediately.


To drink: Kleine Zalze Bush Vines Chenin Blanc (Unwooded) 2009: a wonderful wine for every occasion, full of apricots and melon.
