Chef

Dear OH made a "gateau di patate" yesterday. It's made with potatoes - not mashed with a normal masher, but put through a device which looks like an item of medieval torture apparatus. You might know what I'm talking about. Might not. Also added are chopped salumi of your choice - prosciutto cotto, salami etc, plus provola and parmesan. An egg is used to bind it together. Add parmesan on top plus bread crumbs if you like, then cook it all in the oven. It's nice flexible recipe and is good hot or cold.





I consider myself fortunate that my OH loves to cook. I enjoy cooking too but to have to cook everyday would become too much of a chore mi sa, so it's nice to be able to share the load.

That looks really yummy. I'll have to make it.

I make that all the time! As a matter of fact, I am making twice baked potatoes tonight. It's basically the same thing, just stuffed into potatoe skin shells. And I will be using my 'medieval torture apparatus' too. ;)

I love gateau, but I've never tried to make it. Is it hard to keep it from sticking to the pan?

KC, you just need to butter the container which you cook it in. Have a go! It's very easy (so OH says), versatile and keeps for a few days.

Wow, that looks delicous. I am a cook-aholic, so I always enjoy seeing other people's recipes!
