The rain has let up for now and my mother in law has left so it's back to posting.
After the holidays I still had quite a few potatoes left that I didn't want to go to waste, don't freak out I made this meal a few days after Christmas, so I thought I would attempt a potato dish my mom used to make that she learned from my Romanian grandmother, whom I was never able to meet, she died before I was born. Wow, was that like the longest sentence ever? The original recipe is made using layers of sliced potatoes, eggs, onion, salt and pepper, cooked in a big cast iron skillet than put into the oven to completely cook through. A squirt of ketchup on the side and you are good to go! I would spell out the name but I don't know how to and as it is I don't think I was ever able to prounounce it correctly. Anyhoo! I guess you could call it a type of fritatta but it's really thick and frittata's are not 2-2 1/2 inches thick. Although if you have a smaller skillet it would turn out thicker. Anyways I guess it's more like a potato casserole or something. I give up!
