Crunchy potato and egg bake

Serves
8 as a side dish

This brings back memories of the mashed potatoes and eggs my mum used to make for an easy Sunday night dinner. The sour cream gives a nicely tart edge and the breadcrumbs make the whole thing a bit more glamorous. Although usually a side dish – it’s good with lamb or chicken – I can easily eat a serving of this by itself!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
9 medium waxy potatoes, about 1.5 kg
1 teaspoon salt, for the cooking water
90 grams unsalted butter
375 grams sour cream
185 grams grated cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 large eggs, hard boiled
40 grams panko breadcrumbs

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C and grease a large casserole dish, about 35 x 25 x 5 cm.
  2. Wash the potatoes well (peel if you prefer) and cut into 7 mm (¼ in) slices.
  3. Put the potato slices and salt in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until just tender, about 8 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan over low heat for 2 minutes to ensure any excess water has evaporated.
  4. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the sour cream and whisk until smooth and just bubbling. Remove from the heat and stir in half the grated cheese, the sea salt and pepper, until the cheese has melted into the sauce.
  5. Cut the hard-boiled eggs into 5 mm slices.
  6. Layer half of the potato slices in the casserole dish and cover with the egg slices. Pour over half of the sour cream mixture and layer with the remaining potato slices. Pour over the remaining sour cream mixture. Sprinkle the top evenly with the panko breadcrumbs and the remaining grated cheese.
  7. Bake until the top is golden and crunchy and the filling is bubbling, about 30–40 minutes.
  8. Stand for 5 minutes before serving.
