Potatoes are a great resource for our diet. They can be cooked in many ways and their flavor matches an infinite number of ingredients. The casserole that I propose can be used as a side dish and is suitable for simple things like fried eggs, sausages, or baked fish. For vegetarians, this dish can be a tasty dinner.
POTATOES WITH OREGANO
Preparation time: 20 minutes | Cooking time: 45 minutes
1 ½ pounds of potatoes, cut into round slices
1 white onion
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons of bread crumbs
salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- In a pot, bring about a quart of water to a boil. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut into thick slices. When the water boils, add the potatoes and bring them to a boil for 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let them cool.
- Cut the onion into thin slices and let them sweat in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil and salt. In a bowl, mix the potatoes with the oregano, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- In a baking dish, place a layer of potatoes then distribute the onions over the potatoes, and close with a layer of potatoes. Finally, sprinkle the dish with bread crumbs. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
- After 30 min, remove the foil and continue baking until the top is golden.
Serve nice and hot, fresh from the oven.
