MKMW - Virtual Visit to The Czech Republic! Potato Pie


Not a good photo here.  Our group this month decided on Czech Republic recipes.  I googled and there were a lot to choose from.  I decided on this "potato pie" because we love potatoes.  I served it with a crockpot Boston Butt smothered in sauerkraut and some whole green beans.

If you do not know where the Czech Republic is located, it is in Europe surrounded by Poland, Slovakia and Germany.  The capital and largest city is Prague.

I enjoy our monthly group because it is diverse.  We all enjoy choosing the different countries and trying recipes from them.  I have made some good recipes and some bad ones.  But every recipe teaches me something about a country that I might have known nothing about.

As for the potato pie, it was a very easy and economical dish, but rather bland.

Recipe:

3 eggs
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup milk
3-4 large potatoes, peeled and grated
3 T. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 T. bacon fat

Beat the eggs, salt, and pepper well.  Add the milk.  Add the grated potatoes the stir in flour and baking powder.  Heat bacon fat in a large skillet (iron is best) and pour in potato mixture.  Dot with butter.  Bake uncovered in a preheated 400F degree over for one hour or until golden brown.
Delicious served with sauerkraut and pork.

That's too bad it was bland. When I was a kid my Dad created a dish we call lumberjack, it consists of diced up potatoes, diced up red apple, bacon and onion, all fried up. It's so yummy, now I make it at home. I was thinking you could add some apples, onion and bacon to the potato pie to spruce it up a bit. Might not be as Russian, but it will be tastier!

This looks so filling. I bet it wouldn't take much to add tons of flavor. Thanks for traveling this month.
