Ingrients & Directions

3 c Potato (raw),
-packed, grated
-(about 3 large potatoes)
1 ts Salt
4 Eggs
1 1/4 c Onion, grated
-(or more to taste)
2 tb Oil
3 tb Butter
1 Garlic clove, crushed
-(or more to taste)
1 Broccoli bunch, broken
-into small florets
1/2 ts Basil, dried
2 c Cheddar cheese, grated
1 c Milk

Drain the potatoes and squeeze dry. Add about 1/2 t salt, 1 egg and
about 1/4 cup (or more to taste) grated onion. Pat potato mixture
into well-oiled 10-inch pie pan and bake at 400 degrees F. for 30
minutes. Brush potato crust with oil, reduce oven temperature to 375
degrees F. and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until crust is brown.

While crust is baking, saute about 1 cup chopped onion and garlic in
butter. If you like a lot of onion and garlic, use more. Add broccoli,
about 1/2 t salt, basil, a dash of thyme, and cook covered, stirring
occasionally, for a few minutes.

Spread half of cheese over baked crust. Top with sauteed vegetables
and remaining cheese.

Beat together remaining 3 eggs and milk, and pour over
vegetable/cheese mixture. Sprinkle paprika on top. Bake at 375
degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes until custard is set.


* A wonderful vegetable pie — This recipe is originally from the
_Los Angeles Times_. It takes a lot of time to make, but it’s quite
good. Yield: serves 3-4.

* This recipe can be made in two stages: you can make the crust in
advance and then can make the vegetable topping and bake it later.

* An electric grater is a real time-saver for the crust ingredients.

: Difficulty: moderate.
: Time: 1 1/2 -2 hours.
: Precision: no need to measure.
