I remember my sister used to make this when we lived together, a life time ago. She used to cook all sorts of different stuff, and I hardly knew how to cook anything.
She recently came round to borrow my deep fryer and to ask for some advice on making fried chicken. It started with her asking if anyone knew how to make KFC on Facebook.
I don't know anything about making fried chicken, just like KFC, but I do know how to make fried chicken. Having a pressurised deep fryer helps, but I guess they are not a common household appliance.
For eight years I worked in a fish/chicken and chip shop. I learned lots about life and tons about how to fry shit. I learned a lot about how to prepare and make so many things. Pretty basic things but a lot more than I knew how to make before I started work there!
When I first started work there, I hated it. I hated my boss (she was a hard task master) and would dread having to go. Who would have thought that years later, her family would be like my family and I would have learnt so much, from not only the job, but from her.
I am so grateful for those years.
I cooked this potato bake for the community gardeners, at one of our recent meetings, it was well received. Baked with spuds from the garden beds.
Layer the sliced potato and onion in a casserole dish.
Combine the french onion soup mix and cream in a bowl and pour over the potatoes.
Cover with foil, and bake in a 200 degree oven for one hour.
