About this recipe:I always used to run to the kitchen when I was little and my mum was cooking this for tea. Another one of her family's simpler recipes, this makes for a very cheesey treat in winter time, just serve it up with some crusty bread and Bob's your mother's brother! I find it always tastes better with a mild rather than a mature Cheddar. I have also suggested white potatoes, as I prefer their texture in this recipe. But this is also up to your own personal taste (or whatever's in your cupboard!).

Method Prep:20min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr20min
Preheat your oven to 190 C / 170 fan / Gas 5.
Using a shallow ovenproof dish, layer the ingredients in the order listed, using about a quarter of the amount each time, so that you end up with about four layers. Once you've reached the desired amount, pour a little water into the dish, to help the potatoes to soften a little quicker in the oven.
Top the dish off with a little extra grated cheese, and pop in the oven.
Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your dish, but around 1 hour is a good guideline. All ingredients should be cooked and lightly browned, the potatoes will be soft, and the cheese well melted.
