This is really good as a side by itself or as the base for any number of meat or vegetable mixes. It also works well for breakfast as a substitute for hash browns or with fried eggs on top.
I used red potatoes but really almost any type will work. They can be peeled or left with the skin intact.
- 4 lbs potatoes grated
- 2 small onions grated
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup grated Romano
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 3 tbsp butter 1 tbsp olive oil
Mix everything together but the fat. Season with black pepper. In a 9″ cast iron skillet heat the butter and oil in an oven at 350 degrees for five minutes. Remove pan and pour fat over potato mixture making sure to coat the sides of the pan all the way around. Spoon mixture back into pan and smooth down the top. Bake for 1 hour or until set and brown on top.
