Gluten Free Potato Bake

  • Author: The 4 Blades

This potato bake recipe is so tasty and ever so easy. In fact, it’s not your average potato bake. We challenged the notion that a potato bake needed thinly sliced potatoes and just went ahead and diced them – so easy! Enjoy this chunky, cheesy potato bake with a beautiful nutty crust.

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

Recipe Tester Feedback: “It was amazing and yummy. I loved it. Very cheesy, and the paprika added just the right amount of zing. The crumb was beautiful and crusty. It’s my new favourite potato recipe.” – Erika
