Dinner feeling: French Potatoes

They are called french potatoes around here. I don’t know if they came from France, if a french guy invented them, but what I know is that we inaugurated our brand new oven with this incredible tasty dish.

I can’t even tell you how happy I am that we have now an oven, that’s working, so I can unleash my culinary creativity.

cartofi1I had this dish in mind for some days already but I couldn’t find time to make it. ThanksĀ  God I had today all the ingredients I needed. Actually I almost couldn’t make it, cause right before the start I realized we don’t have enough eggs. Luckily our small fridge had some quail eggs well kept so I used 15 of them together with the 2 chicken eggs I had left.



What you need:

5 boiled potatoes

5 hard boiled chicken eggs

200 grams of grated cheese

some butter for the oven pan

salt & pepper

2 eggs

200 grams of sour cream

How you do it:

1. Put the butter on the pan’s walls, then slice potatoes as thin as you can and make one layer on the buttom of the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper, then add another layer of the boiled sliced eggs. Sprinkle salt and pepper

2. Over the eggs make another layer of grated cheese, then over the cheese put another layer of potatoes. Make the layers until you finish all the quantity of potatoes, eggs and cheese.

3. Beat the 2 eggs with the sour cream and put it in the pan right on top of all of your layers.

4. Put it in the oven on 200 degrees Celsius for about 45 minutes till it parch.

Some people use it as a side dish, but we transformed these great potatoes into our dinner, with an aragula, green onion and cherry tomatoes salad.
