This little side dish split the jury! I found it heavenly in taste and texture, yet the other half decided it was like nursing home food. I urge you to follow my opinion. If this is the kind of food served up at nursing homes, the pack my bags now. I followed a Scandinavian recipe for this dish and served it with a big fat steak. I for one loved it – and I’m 100% sure you would too!
2 large potatoes (coarsely grated)
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh sage (finely chopped)
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
1 knob of butter
Preheat oven to 200ºC. Lightly grease an ovenproof dish with the butter.
Whisk the eggs then add the milk and flour and whisk till smooth. Stir in the salt, sage and pepper. Combine with the grated potato then tip the mixture into the ovenproof dish. Dot with a little more butter then bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Sprinkle over the cheese and bake for a further 10 minutes.
Cool slightly before serving.
Serve as a side dish to almost anything you like.
