Galette de pommes de terre

This is a recipe for a potato cake or bake made in the style of a french Galette de pommes de terre but I believe that my version really is the easy way out. As it will be baked and not fried there are much less steps. This can be a main meal served with salad or a good addition to roasted or steamed vegetables or vegetarian burgers.


4 large potatoes

Slice the potatoes thinly, about 2 mm thick each and place them into a greased oven dish or cake tin. Place them nicely half overlapping into a circle. Brush the potatoes with melted butter and season after two potato slice layers. Grate nutmeg on the potatoes, sprinkle salt, fresh parsley and thyme.

Then add two more potato slice layers, repeat the buttering and seasoning and bake in the oven at 180C for one hour or slightly longer until the potatoes are baked golden brown and crispy around the edges.

Served here with just some roasted tomatoes and garlic.

Stay hungry!
