Veggie Recipe Potato Pie
1 ½ cup cheddar cheese (½ coarsely grated, ½ cut into small chunks)
¾ cup sour cream (crème fraîche works best)
Premade pie crust (from your markets refrigerator section)
2 lbs potatoes, (thinly sliced)
2 medium white onions thinly finely sliced)
1 bunch spring onions- about 6 (roughly chopped)
1 ¼ tsp nutmeg (grated)
1 tsp paprika
1 egg (beaten)
Salt and Pepper
10 x 10 baking pan
Non stick cooking spray
Before You Start: preheat oven to 375˚ and spray inside baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Lets Make It! In a small bowl, mix the grated cheddar with the crème fraîche, then set aside. Roll out one pie crust on a lightly floured surface until large enough to line the baking dish with a little over hang. Place into baking dish and begin filling with one layer of potatoes evenly distributed throughout, then a layer of onions, spring onions and chunks of cheese. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and paprika. Repeat layering over more potatoes, onions and cheese, then spread over half the crème fraîche mix. Repeat with 2 more layers (the potatoes will come up way above the pastry), pushing the filling down slightly, then finish with the remaining crème fraîche mix. Roll the remaining pastry so it fits over the potatoes. Brush the sides with egg, then lay the pastry over the top. Squeeze the edges together and trim with a knife. Crimp the sides and brush the top all over with egg. Place the pie on a baking sheet, bake for 30 minutes then reduce the temperature to 325 and continue baking for 1 hr until golden, If it starts to get to dark cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent burning. Leave the pie to rest for 10 minutes and serve
*Katie’s Tid Bit try using phyllo dough and make small individual tarts. Reduce cooking time to about 40 minutes.
