Creamy potato and pumpkin bake

Written by
A deliciously good side dish!

This mouth-watering bake combines potato, pumpkin, corn and thyme in one wholesome meal, creating a deliciously cheesy dish that’s perfect to accompany any dinner main.

Not only is it great for entertaining a few guests, but you can also make it in bulk to feed a hungry crowd. It’s super versatile as well, so if you prefer sweet potato or cauliflower, simply switch them with one of the main ingredients to give the classic and hearty recipe a bit of a twist.
