Canadian Log Pie


I was given this recipe when I left home, simple and satisfying during the colder weather and gluten free too!

If you have a mandolin this is the perfect excuse to use it, just watch your fingers and use the guard if you have one.

I can’t pretend it’s healthy but maybe serve it with lots of greens to counteract the bacon and cheese.

Consider only seasoning with pepper depending on how salty your bacon is.

Serves 5.


6 medium potatoes, peeled and finely sliced

1 large onion, peeled and finely sliced

500g bacon rashers, chopped up

250g Cheddar cheese, sliced or grated

salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 180degrees Centigrade, lightly grease a deep oven proof dish.

Finely slice the potatoes and set aside.

Finely slice the onions, set aside.

Chop the bacon and set aside.

Place a quarter of the bacon into the prepared dish.

Top with onions followed by potatoes.

Sprinkle or place a quarter of the  grated or sliced cheese over the top, season with pepper.

Repeat a further three times with the final layer being cheese.

Cover and bake for 1 1/2-2hours until the potatoes are cooked.
