Herby Potato Bake

Unlike many potato bakes this one does not have a creamy sauce. Hence it is a healthy alternative and more suitable to serve with the family meal. Recipe serves 6.


4 large or 6 medium potatoes
3/4-1 cup chicken or beef stock
Olive or vegetable oil
Dried rosemary leaves
Dried thyme leaves


1. Peel and slice potatoes thinly. Brush a deep ovenproof dish with oil.
2. Arrange a layer of potato slices, overlapping slightly, in the base of the dish. Brush with oil and sprinkle with thyme and rosemary. Arrange another layer of potato and continue the process until all the potato is used.
3. Boil the stock and pour over the potatoes. The stock should come about 3/4 up the potato. Brush the top layer of potato with a good layer of oil and sprinkle with more herbs.
4. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F (200 degree C) oven for 50-60 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
