Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until tender. Add bacon and fry for a few minutes. Drain the contents of the frying pan onto some kitchen towels and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
In a large bowl, toss together sliced potatoes, salt, pepper, onions, garlic, bacon and milk. Pour into a well-greased baking dish. Pour in the cream and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Serve hot from the baking dish.
This is a really good recipe, but it needs a lot longer to bake than listed. It might just be my oven but it took about 1 1/2 hours to completely cook. Compensate for extra time. We had to eat at 8 pm. Ah well, it tasted delicious. - 10 Apr 2013
After 25 minutes the top was nice and crispy and looked delicious. Although the potato was cooked, the watery milky liquid at the bottom of the dish looked rather unappetising. Overall, the dish tasted fine, but I would not cook this again. - 10 Dec 2013
