Potatoes are the best, aren’t they? You can bake them, fry them in all kinds of ways, boil them and add them to almost any dish. For South Africans one of our favourite ways to enjoy them on braai day is in the form of a classic creamy potato bake. There’s so much joy we can get out of very simple ingredients.

Thinly sliced potatoes, onions, cream and cheese with a bit of herbs and seasoning is all you need. However, you can get creative with this simple base recipe. Add some sweet potato slices into the recipe, maybe a bit of bacon bits and try different cheese combinations. The video below gives you a great starting point for the best potato bake you’ve ever made.
