Potatoes and Red Onions Cake


Looking for some comfort Italian food? An easy recipe for dinner using just what you have in your pantry or fridge? Search no more, here is a no-fuss, personal Italian recipe for a great potato cake. In Italy is often called gatò di patate, or gateau potatoes, and one can get it very rich and nutritious adding sausage, ham, hard boiled eggs or mozzarella cheese as filling ingredients.

Ingredients:

• 4 big potatoes
• 1 big red onion
• 2 whole eggs
• 2 tablespoons of olive oil
• butter
• salt and pepper
• grated Parmigiano or Romano cheese
• chopped Italian parsley
• 2 boiled eggs
• Mozzarella cheese
• sausage, ham or any other meat

Cooking Instructions:

1. Peel and boil the potatoes. Meanwhile, slice the onion and sauté them in a pan with some olive oil, until tender and translucent. Set aside with their condiment.

2. Set the oven at 350 degrees F, then mash the potatoes and mix with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, the grated Parmigiano or Romano cheese (I haven’t given a set quantity here and I am leaving it to you; however, the more cheese the better the taste) and the eggs at the end, when the potatoes have cooled down enough not to cook the eggs. Instead of olive oil, you may use butter or any other type of condiment.

3. At this point, add the chopped Italian parsley and mix. Butter an oven pan and spread some of the potatoes mix evenly in it. Now add any of the other ingredients, like sliced hard boiled eggs, Mozzarella or any other diced cheese you might have, sliced salame, sausage (cooked), ham, turkey, or even some leftover chicken. The concept is to use any food that can make the dish rich and add more protein.

4. Place another layer of the mash potato mix and top with the sauté red onions and their oil, which will add lots of flavor. Sprinkle with some more Parmigiano cheese and bake for about 20 minutes, or until you see that the top of the cake is slightly brown through the onions. Let rest and cool off for 10-15 minutes outside the oven before to serve.

Tips:

• This dish is delicious even cold. Slice and serve as party food or for brunch.
• Remember that the eggs and cheese in the mix are sources of protein even if you don’t add to the cake any other ingredients as filling. Add a salad or some veggies and you'll have a delicious and nutritious meal.
• Little warning here: this is definitely a winter dish, rich in taste but also in calories!
