Tonight I can’t resist repeatjng myself for this potato casserole mainly because it’s our favourite. If the Thermomix could only make stock and white (bechemal) sauce alone. I think I would have been tempted to buy it. With a sick teenager at home, there’s nothing better than homemade chicken stock made into a broth. You just know it’s “gotta be good” when the only ingredients are chicken, celery, carrots onions and herbs. Freshly made today, the broth is just the a tablespoon of chicken stock paste with 500 ml of water, chucked in some spinach and courgettes and poured over some precooked noodles. Chicken noodle soup ready in minutes with the freshest of ingredients.
With temperatures in the single digits, we all felt like a bit if comfort food so out rolls the Oakhill Potato recipe. Everything is easily done in the Thermomix. Steamed potatoes and eggs in Varoma. Then sautéed onion and bacon in TM bowl. Only a quick rinse of the bowl before making one step bechemal sauce (note the sauce may appear too watery at first but thickens on cooling) . Assembled in baking dish topped with breadcrumbs and cheese both grated in the Thermomix. There’s nothing more comforting than onion, potatoes, bacon, milk, cheese and eggs. Served with a Beetroot salad and some tossed greens. For detailed adapted recipe, search this blog for the earlier post on Oakhill Potatoes.
