Creamy Potato and Bacon Bake | Healthy Recipe

Potatoes are one of my favourite side dishes, as they are one of the most versatile of veg out there. From chips to patatas bravas, jacket potatoes and everything in between, they are perfect to have with a meal.

This dish is my take on a creamy gratin dauphinois, but with a healthier twist. I used creamy low fat cream cheese to make the sauce. 

These go really well with any kind of chicken dish, or meat and veg dish.
