I’m pretty sure this is the first Hungarian dish that I have cooked over the past year – certainly the first Hungarian dish on the blog though! However, this easy layered potato dish is not only filling but delicious and, considering the mise en place and cooking time too, it won’t take you more than an hour.
What you need for this dish:
Some kind of spicy sausage – originally, this should be Hungarian, but I used chorizo and it worked just as well.
Lots of cheese
So for preparation, all you need to do is cut your potatoes into thick slices and boil in salted water until tender – at the same time, boil your eggs for about 8 minutes, or until you are positive they will be hard boiled.
Next, grate your cheese and slice your sausage into small slices. Butter your casserole and you are ready to layer! Lay one layer of potatoes, then eggs, then sausage, then seasoning, sour cream and cheese – now repeat, right until you are out of material. Make sure that your top layer is sour cream though. Sprinkle with a lot of cheese and you are ready to bake this in a 180 degree oven until everything is nicely cooked and browned – it took me about 30 minutes.
Et voilá! Not a diet dish, I’m not going to lie – but it is so easy and so tasty, you’d be silly not to make it at home. It is probably one of the very few Hungarian dishes that are not packed with onions – it is also probably one of the few that my boyfriend craves over and over again. So that’s a success.
