Our garden potatoes need using up. Trying to find a meal based around potatoes is hard as they’re generally just an afterthought to a meal, or recipes are about using up leftovers.
The best I’ve come up with is a potato & tomato gratin from Cook’s Country. It still feels more like a side dish, but with tomatoes, onions and olives I’ve decided to declare it a vegetarian main meal! Well except for the Gruyère cheese…
So it’s a layer thing. Tomatoes & basil.
Potatoes from the garden.
Next layer is caramelised onions.
Then potatoes and tomatoes again.
Into a 200C regular oven (dakos in the fan oven) for an hour.
Top with cheese.
Then back in for 30 minutes.
Mmm that does work as dinner! Lovely mix of salty olives and sweet tomatoes, with bulk from the potatoes.
