Today is another sunny day, and I'm sharing another potato recipe. Not that this dish has anything to do with the sunny day, quite the contrary... I can't wait to cook some lighter spring dishes, but in the meanwhile I have still been enjoying many lovely comforting cheese and potato dishes.
Cheese and onion pies are such classics, and I can't get enough of this combination. This pie is very easy and quick to make, as I used ready made pastry. You could even use left-over potato mash in this recipe, as not particularly many ingredients are needed for this pie. I decorated it with a couple of ponies, just for the sake of it.
Cheese, onion and potato pie
3 garlic cloves
2 spring onions
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp ground white pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
50 ml dry cider
100 g red leicester cheese
100 g cheddar cheese
300 g shortcrust pastry
Cook the potatoes and mash them.
Chop the onions, garlic and spring onion finely, and cook them in butter until soft.
Season with salt, pepper and oregano and pour the cider in. Let simmer for a few minutes, and then mix with the potato mash and cheese.
Roll out the pastry and place it into a pie tin.
Bake in the oven at 200 C for about 30 minutes until nicely golden brown.
