Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a mandoline or vegetable slicer, slice the potatoes as thin as possible and as evenly. Pat dry
  • Slice onion thinly, cut in quarters. You really want it slivered..
  • Grease the bottom of a nine inch glass pie pan.
  • *bacon fat is wonderful and I have done it with duck fat and that will make you swoon.
  • Layer the potato pieces evenly across the bottom of the plate about 1/3 of the slices.
  • Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, nutmeg.
  • Top with 1/2 of the onions.
  • Dot with butter.
  • Repeat the layering process ending with the potatoes.
  • Put pie pan on a cookie sheet in case of spillover in your oven.
  • Slowly pour the cream over the potatoes.
  • Dot with a little more butter ( if you dare)
  • Finally sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake one hour to one hour and ten minutes until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown.

    This is sensational and a dish we cook when we have favoured guests -- and our butcher sells rendered duck and goose fat .My only difference is a bit of garlic which I heat with the cream then remove before pouring over .

    Outstanding comfort food - and one of my personal faves! And honey, I think bacon grease is a great add. Just a little adds so much flavor...I love it. And I love my mandoline, too - it makes perfect slices in no time flat. High 5 - and thank ya!! ;)
