Potato galette


Potato galette
This potato "cake" is like a big savoury pancake of duchess potatoes (mashed potato with egg yolks), mixed with strips of fried ham, chives and spring onions.

The galette is cooked in the oven in a tin and cut into portions for serving.

This is delicious on its own or with a good green salad on the side, but can also be used to accompany many other dishes.

Remarks

You can use whatever kind of ham you prefer: dry-cured or smoked, or even use bacon bits (lardons) instead.

If you don't have spring onions, or they are out of season, use a normal onion or shallots, but increase the amount of chives or add a little chopped parsley.
