Cheesy Wedged Potatoes


A nice side dish for most meals or even just to accompany a salad.  The quantities are a bit vague as it depends on the size of the potatoes and how many people you are cooking for.


Several potatoes (I used small new potatoes)

Garlic butter

2 garlic cloves

2 slices of bacon (fried and cut in small pieces)

A handful of grated cheese (of your choice)


Wash potatoes then thinly slice about ¾ of the way through (don’t slice completely through or they won’t remain in one piece).

Place in an oven proof dish or roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil.  Bake until tender (changes depending on size).  Every now and then you can spoon some of the olive oil over them.

Once cooked push small amounts of garlic butter between the slices, (You can use normal butter if you don’t like garlic).  Place pieces of the fried bacon between some of the slices.   Sprinkle grated cheese over the top and remaining bacon pieces and grill until browned and cheese has melted.  Serve immediately.


Also lovely with a dressing drizzled over, such as blue cheese salad dressing.
