It’s tender and rich with a crisp buttery crust.

The layers of potatoes bake with a drizzle of heavy cream, so they soften into decadent folds of silky goodness.

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 7 thick sliced bacon, chopped
  • 5 potatoes, 4 large, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chive for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the thawed puff pastry in a 8-9 inch tart pan and crimp the edges. Remove the excess dough and piece it along the rim if needed to make the rim even in some places. Refrigerate the crust until ready to fill.

  2. Place the butter and bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté until the bacon is crispy then toss in the onions, followed by the potatoes and dill. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Gently stir 3-5 minutes,to mix the onions and potatoes and coat in bacon grease. (The potatoes don't need to be cooked through.) Then spoon the mixture into the crust and drizzle with heavy cream.
  3. Bake on the low rack in the oven for 35-45 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender and the crust is golden. Rest for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with chopped chive and cut.

    We have a themed Christmas in July every year with our large family, with decorations and food to coordinate for fun. This year’s was an Irish Christmas. I came across this recipe so I thought I’d take a chance and make it. WHAT A HIT!!! Everyone LOVED it!! Delicious..I’ll definitely be making this again. Had many requests to bring to gatherings again. Very highly recommended:)

    Hi Sommer, Thanks for the great recipe! I made this Irish Potato Pie a few days ago and we’re still enjoying it! I had never worked with puff pastry before, and it went great! I didn’t have a tart pan, so used a low pie pan. Also didn’t have heavy cream on hand, so used sour cream with a little milk added. Thanks again!!
