This is so easy to make and the troops will come asking for more. If you have a large crowd, just double the recipe.


I believe this recipe originated on the Island of Ă–land.


My parents use to have a summer home on that Island many years ago.

Ingredients:


  • 750 grams or 1.6 lbs of Potatoes, peeled and shredded fine
  • 250 ml or 8.5 oz of Half and Half. You can use half milk and half cream
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ tsp of Salt
  • ⅛ tsp of ground White Pepper
  • 300 gram of thick cut Bacon

In a medium-sized bowl beat the egg, half and half, salt and pepper together.  Grate the potatoes on fine. Squeeze out some of the water out of the grated potatoes. Mix the grated potatoes into the egg mixture. Scoop the mixture into a pre-made tin foil pan. Top with bacon.


Bake on BBQ, over the fire or in the oven on medium-high at 225 C or 437 F. Bake for 1 hour.

There are many variations of this recipe. Some people would add 200 ml of flour to the above recipe whisked in with the half and half. Finely shredded onion can also be added and maybe a few dollops of butter on top. Let me know what you come up with.
