Learn Hungarian #1 – Layered potatoes

I like layered food because I think they look so great in a see-through dish and taste amazing when all the flavors spend some time together in the oven. Being away from home does not mean we should miss all things, and I am a little bit fed up with salmon ( I know it is a terrible thing to say, I know! – but I am a bit here in Sweden) so let me give some popularity to Hungarian food because it deserves it! This is a very easy dish, tastes really great, looks amazing and perfect for a friends-coming-over-night. I am sure you will like it once you try it! Just leave out the sausage and can serve it in a vegetarian way too.Layered-potatoes




Let me know how did it work out for you once you tried it!

What we need:

  • 8 medium sized potatoes
  • sausage -thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 big spoons of sour creme
  •  2 spoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • grated cheese

  1. First preheat the oven to 180 ºC (350°F). Boil some water, put the potatoes in it and cook them until they become soft inside…check it with a sharp knife. Peel and cut the potatoes into 0,5 cm thick rounds.
  2. Also cook 4 eggs with the potatoes until hard-boiled – this usually takes 10 minutes. Peel the egg shells – watch out they are very hot! -so first put it under cold water – and cut the eggs into thin approx. 0,5 cm slices.Layered-potatoes
  3. Get a bowl pour in 2 eggs, sour-creme, olive oil, salt and pepper and mix it well. This will be your sauce.
  4. Now the ovenproof dish put 1/3 potatoes in the dish than cover it with 1/3 eggs and the 1/3 sausage add some of the sauce and all over again, continue the layering. Now gently mix the entire thing so you make sure that the sauce gets everywhere.
  5. Sprinkle with grated cheese on the top and place it into the oven covered with alufolia. Get off the alufolia after 40 minutes and leave it inside for anothe 10 – it’s  done when the cheese gets a pretty golden-brownish colour.Layered-potatoes

Hope you like it as much as We do!:)

So what you have to look out in my experiences:

– If after mixing the dish seems a bit dry, make some more sauce and pour it all over again…because it will be get even drier in the oven.
