INGREDIENTS

 

2 tins (400g each) Lucky Star Pilchards in Hot Chilli Sauce

1 tin (380g) evaporated milk

1 tsp each salt and pepper (optional)

2 cups grated cheese

3 large potatoes

1 packet (28g) potato chips

 

Serving suggestion:

Parsley, chopped

Salad

 

METHOD

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Remove the Lucky Star Pilchards in Hot Chilli Sauce from the tin and carefully remove the bones using a fork. *Chef’s Tip: It is not necessary to remove the bones as they are safe to eat!

  3. In a mixing bowl, lightly mix the pilchards and their sauce with the evaporated milk, salt, pepper and 1 cup of cheese until just combined.

  4. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes, about 2mm.

  5. In an ovenproof square baking dish, layer the sliced potatoes and pilchard mixture creating about 3 layers of each. Finish with the pilchard mixture as the final layer.

  6. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  7. Remove the dish from the oven and change the oven setting to grill. Remove the foil, add the remaining cheese and crush over the store-bought potato chips for a crispy crust. Grill the potato bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until the topping is golden and crispy.

  8. Garnish the bake with parsley. Serve warm with a salad and ENJOY!
