Potato Crusted Flan #sikandalouscuisine
This is a quick and easy dish - can be your meal or a snack - the filling is again limited to what you have at home / wish to use . I made this in a small casserole dish - good for two. This is my take on a quiche where one uses a flour pastry , I wanted to avoid flour so came up with a POTATO PASTRY - worked deliciously.
3 Potatoes - Boil , peel , mash with 1 tablespoon butter , add flavoring and minced herbs . Lightly grease a baking dish and pat on the potato as shown in the photograph - Bake at 180C for 15 minutes while you make the filling.
1 Large Egg.
10 Mushrooms- Chop in 4/6 pieces.
1 Small Onion - Slice.
5-7 Cherry Tomatoes - Cut in half.
50 Ml Cream / Milk.
2-3 Tablespoons Grated Cheese.
1/3d Teaspoon Baking Powder.
While the flan bakes saute onions and mushrooms over very high heat for no more than one minute you only wish to sear it all - add salt and pepper to taste . Mind you there will be salt in the cheese too and in the potato crust . Now add tomatoes and take off heat, cool .
Whip up egg and cream , add cheese , add the filling , mix and pour this into the baked potato flan. Decorate the top with sliced cherry tomatoes if you wish , and bake at 180C for another 15 minutes.It couldn't get simpler or more delicious !
