250 g bacon, chopped

chopped chives (optional)

2 eggs

80 ml (1/3 c) crème fraîche

1    Preheat the oven to 190 °C.

2    Peel the potatoes, rinse and dry them well. Slice very thinly, mix with the olive oil and season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

3    Layer the potato slices and bacon in a casserole or baking tin. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are soft. Top with chives (if using).
