A hearty flavoursome meal that can be prepared before your day’s chores and be ready to eat when you get home in the evening.


  • 750 g Potatoes Thinly Sliced

  • 25 g Butter

  • 2 Onions Roughly Chopped

  • 250 g Back Bacon Smoked, Diced

  • 1 Dessert Apple Cored and Sliced

  • 2 tbsp Flour Plain

  • 450 ml Chicken Stock

  • 2 tsp English Mustard

  • 2 Bay Leaves

  • 50 g Cheddar Cheese Grated

  • Salt + Pepper


  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and add the potatoes, let them simmer for just 2/3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large frying pan add a knob of butter and sweat of the onions and bacon for a few minutes until they just start to colour.
  • Add the apple, flour and seasoning (salt + pepper) mix the ingredients well.
  • Starting with potato, layout 1/3 of the potato on the bottom of the inner pot, then 1/2 of the bacon and apple mix, another layer of potato and the rest of the apple and bacon, topping the dish with a layer of potato.
  • If you find you are running low on Potatoes, it wouldn’t take long to just quickly peel and slice another one and simmer for 2/3 minutes to parboil, drain, let them cool down a bit and finish the topping.
  • Place the inner pot back into the slow cooker.
  • Using the juices left in the frying pan add the mustard the chicken stock and bay leaves and bring back to the boil.
  • Pour the stock over the potatoes and set the cooking time on low for 9 hours.
  • Just before you are ready to serve, carefully remove the inner pot from the slow cooker and sprinkle the top with grated cheese, place the pot under a preheated grill to melt the cheese and brown of the top.
  • Serve and enjoy
