Thermomix Potato Bake Recipe, But Different.

Chunky Thermomix Potato Bake Recipe

This Thermomix potato bake recipe is so tasty… and DARN EASY. It’s not your average potato bake though. Bec had a thought… “Does a potato bake NEED to have thinly sliced potatoes, or can they be diced?” This thought spawned this chunky, cheesey potato bake with a beautiful nutty crust.

Chop up the potatoes into cubes.
Make a simple crumb. Set it aside.
Make a cheesy sauce.
Combine the potatoes and the sauce.
Top with the crumb.

It’s that easy!!!

We discussed this potato bake in Episode 144 of The 4 Blades podcast – The Impromptu Dinner Party Episode.
