Potato Cheese and Onion Bake June 25, 2010

Ingredients

2lbs/908g of floury potatoes

2 red onions

A bunch of spring onions

6oz/170g mozzarella cheese

A bunch of fresh dill

Fry Light/one cal spray

½ pint of skimmed milk

6oz/170g quark

Salt and pepper

I made a few substitutes with the ingredients; firstly I am not a fan of dill so I changed that for some Italian seasoning. Also I couldn’t find quark so I mixed some low fat yogurt, low fat cream cheese and milk together, which worked perfectly.

 Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Peel the potatoes, slice the red onions, chop the spring onions, slice the mozzarella and chop the dill.
  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil; add the potatoes and par-boil for 5 minutes. Drain and leave to cool, and then slice. Heat some fry light in a pan and cook the red onions and spring onions until slightly soft.
  3. Arrange the sliced potatoes with the onions in a gratin dish, in a jug mix the milk with the quark and dill. Season and pour over the potato. Top with the sliced mozzarella and bake for 40 minutes.
