Simon’s Famous Potato Casserole

This potato casserole is wonderful.

Simon has basically tweaked a scalloped potato recipe over the years and has settled on the recipe below.  It is rich and creamy and meltingly delicious.  The quantities I have stated are for a really big casserole dish and can be easily modified if a smaller amount is required.

He uses a mandolin which is the best way of getting uniformly finely sliced potatoes.  Also he often uses a bag of frozen ready sliced onions which saves a lot of tears…

The leftovers freeze very well and we store them in 500g boxes in the freezer and serve as a side with fish or chicken or home-made meatballs so always have them at hand…

Simons Potato Casserole


2 kilograms potatoes finely sliced

2 cans cream of chicken soup

12 slices Swiss cheese

1 tub sour cream

½ a soup can of white wine

4 onions thinly sliced


Panko crumbs for topping

Pinch paprika.



In a large jug mix together the cream of chicken soup, white wine and the sour cream

Finely slice potatoes – using a mandolin is the quickest and best method

Rub a large casserole dish with butter

Lay slices of potato to cover the base of the dish

Top with a layer of finely sliced onions

Continue until layer three then also top with a layer of cheese slices and a generous amount of the soup mixture

Continue layering and on the sixth layer include the cheese and cover the entire casserole with the remaining soup mixture.

Top with panko crumbs and a sprinkling of paprika

Bake in a 180c fan-forced oven for around 2 hours or until a skewer pierces them easily

If the top looks like it is getting too brown, cover with foil to prevent it burning.


Bon Appetit!  🙂

Swiss Chicken

This is one of those embarrassingly easy recipes that everybody loves.  It takes only minutes to prepare and an hour later you are enjoying a really delicious chicken casserole…   The quantities here are for a large casserole dish – you can halve the amounts if required.  It freezes very well so I always make a big dish…


1 1/2 – 2 kg chicken thighs

2 cans Cream of Chicken condensed soup (you don’t need to season this dish as the soup is salty enough)

2/3 can of white wine

8 slices of Swiss Cheese

Panko crumbs for the top

Chilli Flakes (optional)


Cut the chicken thighs in half and trim to remove any obvious big bits of fat or little bits of bone

Place in a single layer in a large casserole dish

Lay 4 slices of  Swiss cheese over the chicken

Add another layer of chicken and another layer of Swiss cheese

Mix the canned soup and the wine together in a large jug

Pour this over the chicken and cheese

Sprinkle with Panko crumbs and top with some random chilli flakes

Bake in a 180 c (fan forced) oven for 1 hour until cooked and the top is golden brown

Serve with steamed rice or mashed potatoes

Bon Appetit!

Tip of the Day:

You can put layer of chopped broccoli or cauliflower or mushrooms on the bottom of the dish to hide vegies from little and big kids!
