Ingredients
  • 1.5kg waxy potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

, ,
Directions

Preheat the oven to 200C.

For these two quantities, take two large baking dishes or roasting tins (line with baking or parchment paper if you dishes are not non-stick) and layer 1/3 of the potatoes. Sprinkle with a little of the garlic and thyme dividing them equally between each dish/tray. Season with a little salt and pepper.

Next put a layer of fennel over the potatoes

Repeat the layering process in each tray, finishing with a final layer of potatoes, arranged neatly and finish with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Divide the wine between the dishes/pans, taking care to pour it around the edges of the dish rather than over the top. Top up with a couple of tablespoons of water in each tray also poured around the edges to moisten the mix.

Place in the preheated oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes or until the potatoes and fennel are both tender and the top is crisping and golden. Remove from the oven and cut into portions then serve.
