This is a simple recipe on which quantities depend on how many you are feeding..
You will need
Potatoes which are thoroughly washed and scrubbed clean. Thinly slice ..I leave the skins on..I like Maris Pipers myself..but whatever you have!
Some finely sliced onions
Bay leaves.. other herbs of choice..perhaps some thyme or mixed herbs
Beef stock.. you can sub to vegetable or chicken if liked
Oil to glaze the top layer of potatoes.
layer the potatoes ,onion and garlic in a shallow casserole dish, add herbs if using,
Carefully pour in stock and tuck in a few bay leaves on the top . Brush the top layer of potatoes with some oil.this will help them go crispy.
Cover the dish with foil and cook in a low oven , this needs a gentle heat, until potatoes can be pierced with a pointed knife and feel done.Remove foil for last 10 to 15 minutes of cooking..
This is a fantastic vegetable dish to just put in the oven and get ahead !!! very easy to do and unbelievably delicious..
