    If you thinly slice the pots. you don't need to pre-cook them. Just put them directly into the ovenproof dish, layer with onions and cheese, pour on milk and bake for around 35 mins. Much easier.

    This is such a tasty dish! Made it the other day and my family loved it, you can also make a cheesy white sauce as you would for pasta and pour it over each layer of potato, works the same, much more creamy and yummy!
