My favorite dinner in the summer has always been a tossed salad, grilled steak or chicken and a baked potato. Of course, the potato part varies and often we serve a veggie dish of some kind. So I was overjoyed to run across this recipe in Donna Hay's 50th Birthday Issue. I love this magazine! I took a subscription, finally, and it was the nicest gift I've given myself in ages!
Is this the perfect recipe to serve with steak or what? Kind of a potato/onion upside down
Potato, Onion and Gruyère Galette
Donna Hay's 50th Anniversary Issue
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
12 sprigs thyme
1 large onion, sliced somewhat thickly ( a tad more than 1/4 inch thick)
3/4 t0 1 lb. waxy potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin)
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup grated gruyère
1 cup grated mozzarella
sea salt and cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°. Melt the butter in a 9-10 inch ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Add the thyme and onion and cook for 5 minutes. Place the potato, oil, Gruyère, mozzarella, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine.
Top the onion with the potato mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Turn upside down to serve.
