Tasty Tuesday - Potato gratin

Posted by Claudia Moser on 5:38 AM in , ,

The original recipe comes from here, I tried it and all I can say is that I did not even have a chance to snap a picture, it was so delicious that we ate it in a second or two :)

For 6 people you will need:

1,25 kg potatoes
3 fillets of pork (à ca. 330 g)
3–4 spoons of olive oil
1 onion
125 g diced bacon
1 spoon tomato puree
italien spices
500 g diced tomatoes
150 ml stock
50 g cream
sweet Paprika
75 g Gouda cheese
rosmarin and oregano


1. Clean the potatoes and boil them for 25 Minutes. Then peel them, cut them in thin slices and set them aside.
2. In the meantime dice the meat and grill it for 12 Minutes in oil. Add salt and pepper and them set them aside.
3. Clean the onions, dice them and together with the bacon add them in the already used oil. After they are a bit done, add the tomato puree, tomatoes, cream and the stock. Add salt, pepper and paprika together with the italian spices. Boil them for 10 minutes till you get a nice sauce.
4. Use a temperature resistant form, add grease on the walls and add the potatoes in layers on the bottom as well as on walls. Add the meat in the middle and then add the sauce together with the rosmarin. On top add the grated cheese and put it in oven at 200 degrees for 25 Minutes.

I served it with salad and was delicious!



Hi Claudia. Hope you are feeling a little bit better today. Gosh, there are some tasty ingredients in that potato gratin. No wonder you gobbled it up so quickly!! I presume you meant pork as the meat which went into it.

@Diane - you did spot my error, thank you! :) just staying at home and taking it easy!

I am hoping you didn't do all this work while feeling down and under the weather. It looks delicious and when I get over this cold I seem to have inherited from my grandson I plan on trying to create this delicacy!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
