aka Gratin of Shredded Potatoes with Bacon, Eggs and Onions. French comfort food at its finest!
Here’s how to do it:
Preheat the oven to 350°. Then take:
½ cup finely minced onions
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
Cook the onions slowly in the oil and butter for 5 minutes or so, until tender but not browned.
1/3 cup diced bacon
Raise the heat slightly, stir in the bacon and cook for a few minutes more.
½ clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp minced parsley
2/3 cup grated Gruyere
¼ cup cream
Pepper and salt
Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with the garlic, herbs, cheese, cream and seasonings. Add the bacon and onion mixture.
3 medium-sized potatoes
Peel the potatoes and grate them, using the large holes of the grater. A handful at a time, squeeze out the water.
Stir the potatoes into the egg mixture.
Put the mixture into a buttered baking dish. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the top is nicely browned.
