Cheesy potato bake for Christmas Day

What you’ll need:

  • 60g butter
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 2 1/3 cups milk
  • 2 cups grated cheese (500g)
  • 1.2kg potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 6cm deep, 24cm square baking dish.

Step 2

Melt butter in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2

minutes, or until bubbly. Remove from heat. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly until well combined.

Return to heat. Cook, stirring, until sauce comes to the boil.

Step 3

Add 1 1/2 cups of cheese. Stir to combine.

Step 4

Arrange one-third of potatoes, overlapping slightly, over base of baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and

pepper. Spoon one-third of the cheese sauce over potatoes. Repeat twice. Sprinkle with remaining

cheese. Bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender and top is golden. If top begins to brown too

much, cover with foil.
