Last night I had the urge for cheesy potatoes! I didn’t fancy mash though so I decided to make a cheesy potato bake – however, I didn’t have many ingredients in that would normally be needed in a cheesy bake; for example cream and onions. So I got out what I did have and started cooking and it tasted yummy! You don’t have to go out and buy a load of ingredients just for one meal.
So here it is… (sorry for the poor quality in photography, camera wasn’t near me when I decided to take the photo’s DOH!)
Mixed Vegetables (Frozen)
Firstly cut your potatoes into thin slices – I used baby potatoes as that’s what I had in the cupboard. Place potatoes into a pan of water and simmer for 10 minutes and then drain. Place 1 Tbsp of oil (I used sunflower oil) into the pan of potatoes and stir so that the oil is evenly placed.
Prepare your salmon fillets. Place your salmon into lightly wrapped tin foil and pour a tiny bit of water on then so that they do not dry out. Place them to one side.
Grease your baking dish or dishes will butter and place a thin layer of potatoes. Add a few small sprinkles of butter and grate some cheese over the top.
Then repeat this method one more time so that you have two layers.
Place your baking dish into a pre-heated oven of 200 degrees along with your salmon. Leave for approximately 20-25 minutes depending on the cooking time of your salmon.
Place the mixed vegetables into boiling water and simmer for 2-5 minutes covered. The time for your vegetables will depend on the brand used – follow the instructions on the packaging.
Drain your veg – take your food out of the oven and voila! Enjoy!
