  • Seasonal recipe No 49: Bacon, potato and mushroom gratin

    Posted on June 19th, 2010 Trish No comments

    Thanks again to Henrietta Danvers for this week’s recipe – a Good Housekeeping one that makes good use of the new potatoes in our boxes.

    Serves 2

    Preparation: 5 minutes
    Cooking: 25 minutes

    250g new potatoes
    salt and pepper
    1 small onion, chopped
    125g bacon, diced
    2 tbsp olive oil
    125g button mushrooms
    125g Cheddar cheese, grated

    Cook the potatoes and drain. Heat the olive oil and cook the onion and bacon, then add the mushrooms. Transfer to a gratin dish and stir in the potatoes. Season and spread the grated cheese on top. Grill until the cheese is bubbling. Serve.

    For a vegetarian variation, replace the bacon with sliced leeks and add fresh herbs such as thyme and a little rosemary.
