Recipe Tips

  • If you are running low on time or cannot be bothered, you can skip the layering of the ingredients. Simply mix all the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook for the same amount of time. It is important to note that it might not be as lovely as if you were to layer it.
  • You can cook this dish on low for eight hours, but the texture of the potatoes might not be as nice. They will be mushier and less crisp around the edges, but it should still be a great dish.
  • Removing the lid for fifteen to thirty minutes at the end of cooking will allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Heavy cream is also known as thickened cream in Australia or whipping cream in United Kingdom.
  • The video is a fantastic way to see how to layer this dish correctly.
