  • Seasonal local food recipe No.218 – Homity bake

    Posted on February 28th, 2014 Janet No comments

    This is a favourite winter warmer in our house and originates from the Cranks recipe book.  It started out as a pie but as I’m lazy and don’t particularly like making pastry I missed it out and just baked the filling!

    onions-camel csaServes 4

    Preparation time: 30 mins
    Cooking time: 25-30 mins

    500g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
    450g onions, thinly sliced
    3 tbs olive oil
    25g butter
    15g parsley, chopped
    125g cheese, grated
    2 cloves garlic crushed
    1 tbs milk
    salt and pepper to taste

    Boil or steam the potatoes until tender.  At the same time saute the onions in the oil until really soft.  Combine the potatoes and onions, add the butter, parsley, half the cheese, garlic, milk and season well.  Place the mixture in a greased ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.  Bake at gas mark 6/200°C for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top.  This is delicious served with baked beans.
