“This potato bake made with gammon stock is my favourite.”- Abigail Donnelly


  • 12 potatoes
  • 6 baby fennel, bulbs
  • 2 cups gammon or chicken stock
  • 4 T ghee
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 50g Woolworths crispy onion sprinkle

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Slice the potatoes and fennel very thinly using a mandolin.

2. Arrange the potatoes and fennel on their sides in a greased 35 x 25 x 10 cm baking dish. Pour over the stock and ghee and season. Bake for 1½ hours. Sprinkle with the crispy onions to serve

Cook's note: Reserve the stock from poaching the gammon to use in this potato bake. If you’re not doing a gammon (as if!) you can use chicken stock instead.
