Pan Haggerty is a delicious and simple to make British dish that is originally vegetarian, but can include meat too. I wouldn’t say its quick, but your kids will love it. My wife ended up scraping the pan, so I’m pretty sure it appeals to children. (I hope she isn’t reading this)
- Potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
- Onions, peeled and sliced thin
- Cheese to sprinkle (I prefer a hard cheese like Grana Padano)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Bacon, shredded [optional]
- Garlic, peeled and sliced thin [optional]
The quantities aren’t mentioned as they depend on the size of the pan you’re using. They’re very simple ingredients however and you shouldn’t have a problem.
- Oil a pan, put a layer of sliced potatoes, then a layer of sliced onions, then sprinkle some cheese. Season each layer with a little salt and pepper.
- Repeat for about 3 layers.
- Finish with a layer of potatoes with some cheese sprinkled over.
- Cook on very low heat for about 30 minutes, taking care the bottom doesn’t burn. I used a heavy bottomed as you can see from the picture.
- Finish off under the grill till the potatoes are browned and the cheese bubbling.
I also sprinkled some paper thin slices of garlic over the cheese before popping it into the oven and added some shredded raw bacon between layers too.
