Very Awesome Potato Pie

Written by Vivianne

Hope you’re not on a low-carb diet, because this pie recipe is fully loaded with potato slices wrapped in cream sauce and pastry crust. Nonetheless this could be the most decadent PMS dish ever, and I still think it’s healthy assuming it’s all home made with fresh ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need!

  • approx. 300g puff pastry (or use shortcrust)
  • approx 600g potatoes (about 3 medium-sized), preferably waxy
  • salt
  • 125ml milk
  • 125ml cream
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 0.5 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tblsp vinegary liquid from a jar of capers
  • 0.25 tsp lemon zest
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tblsp capers
  • 2 tblsp sliced green olives, preferably brined
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced (optional)
  • 1 tblsp chopped dill leaves
  • 1 tblsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • a little beaten egg for glazing (optional)
  • An ovenproof pie dish – a 24cm round dish, about 3 cm deep, would do the trick
