BACON POTATO PIE
POTATO-PIE-1 - A brunch casserole with potatoes, eggs,
bacon, and cheese
This is a very easy brunch dish, similar to a fritatta in
texture, but full of traditional breakfast ingredients. The
recipe comes from a cookbook published by the Contra Costa
(California) Times newspaper, called "Tastes of the Times".
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)
1 lb bacon, thick-sliced and lean
1 lb baking potatoes
1/2 lb cheddar cheese
(1) Cut the bacon slices into square pieces. Fry the
pieces until well-cooked, then drain on paper
(2) Peel the potatoes, then grate them. To prevent
the grated potatoes from discoloring while you
prepare the other ingredients, you can put them
into a bowl of cold water. When you're ready to
use them, be sure to drain well and squeeze them
(3) Grate the cheese. Mince the onion.
(4) Butter a 9x13 inch shallow baking dish. Preheat
the oven to 350 deg. F.
(5) Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add all the other
ingredients and stir. Pour the mixture into the
baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for
about 45 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
It really does make a difference if you use good meaty bacon
for this. I find the best bacon at my local butcher shop.
You can prepare part of this ahead. I think egg dishes are
better if they haven't been refrigerated. So if you want to
work ahead, you can cook the bacon, grate the cheese and
potatoes and mince the onion the night before. Store all
these things separately in the refrigerator, covering the
potatoes with water. Then in the morning just mix it all up
and bake it.
Difficulty: moderate (tedious). Time: 30 minutes prepara-
tion, 1 hour baking and cooling. Precision: approximate
