  1. Prep

    Preheat the oven to gas 8, 230°C, fan 210°C. Chop 2 potatoes into small cubes, parboil in a pan of boiling water for 5 mins, then drain. Slice the remaining 2 potatoes as thinly as you can and set aside.

  2. Layer

    In a medium baking dish, mix the ham hock, mushroom soup and cubed potatoes together to create the filling. Top with the thinly sliced potatoes and brush with a little olive oil.

  3. Bake

    Bake for 50-55 mins until piping hot with a crispy top.

  4. Serve

    Serve immediately.

  5. Freezing and defrosting guidelines

    Once cool, cover the baking dish with clingfilm or foil and place in the freezer. To reheat from frozen, preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Remove the covering and bake for 40-45 mins, turning halfway. If the top becomes too dark, cover loosely with foil. Do not reheat or refreeze again. For more tips on freezing and defrosting food, read our article Love Your Freezer.
