Vintage cheese potato bake

Posted: November 28, 2010 in Tarts & bakes

Last nights meal was based on a need, a need to use up all the leftovers in my fridge. It combined two loves of mine, potato and vintage cheese. On Saturdays we normally eat pizza and I experiment with new flavours. However after reviewing the contents of my fridge I figured there was no room left to store another meal and it was time I reviewed the meal plan. The beauty of my meal plan is, I just drag and drop the meal not needed onto another day of the calendar or delete it. Which is something I may need to do a bit of this week as my husband jets off around the country again. It might be best I ease up on the serving sizes too, unless of course the army drops in.

    So different from the normal, plain potato bake that we are used to. The flavors were well combined and very tasty. Will be making this for a friend who always likes her potato bake.
