    Potato Cheese and Bacon Pie


    1kg of Rooster potatoes which have been peeled, thinly sliced and washed

    I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

    Pre heat the oven to 425F/220C/Gas mark 7.

    Butter a 9 inch ovenproof non stick baking dish.

    Arrange the bacon slices into the bottom and the sides of the greased pan. Make sure some of the strips overhang the edge of the dish slightly.

    Dry the washed, peeled and sliced Rooster potatoes and dry with kitchen towel.

    Take about one third of the tatties and place these slices over the bacon. Then sprinkle about a third of the grated gruyere. Repeat this step so that two more layers of tattie and cheese are in the dish.

    Now fold over the overhanging bacon onto the top layer of potatoes and cheese. Place the dish in the oven and bake uncovered for 50 minutes.

    Before removing from the oven ensure it is cooked throughout by testing the tatties by piercing a knife through the pie. The potatoes should feel soft and the knife gently pass through the dish.

    Other cheeses could be used for this but the harder gruyere melts at the right time with the potatoes and blends well to give a mild nutty taste.
