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.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
