3 1/2 oz onions, sliced
3 1/2 oz mushrooms, sliced
3 1/2 oz smoked bacon, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons oil
6 slices havarti cheese
1 pinch dried thyme
6 large baking potatoes
1 tablespoon salt
butter, softened

Boil the potatoes in their skins for 20 mins, drain & leave to cool. Peel them & using a cheese grater, grate them into a large mixing bowl & sprinkle with salt. In a frying pan saute the bacon & onions & thyme. Add mushrooms & cook for about 5 mins until soft. Combine with the potatoes & mix carefully, taking care not to mash them too much. Heat oil in a frying pan & add 3 or 4 spoonfuls of the mixture (See cook's note at the bottom. Using a spatula, pat the mixture into a round flat cake. Brown it over a high heat. When the bottom side is cooked flip it over. Repeat with remaining potatoes to make 6 cakes. Put 1/2 tbsp of butter & a slice of cheese on each cake & melt under a hot grill or broiler.
