RECIPE: My Mom's Famous Potato Pie

There's nothing like a warm slice of....potato pie!

My mom's potato pie is one of my favourite things in the world, and not only do we enjoy it year-round it's also a staple at Thanksgiving. My mom credits her mom -- my Nonna -- for teaching her how to make this version, which she called a Gateaux (cake in French).  

There are many versions of this dish online and in family traditions -- I"ve had people tell me they call it "Spuma" or "Pizza de Patate". Some people put Prosciutto Cotto inside, and others Cacciatore sausage. 

Here's our version:

Lina's Famous Potato Pie

  • Mashed Potatoes (these can be leftover. Ensure they are salted, and smooth)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 6 Provolone Cheese slices; you can use Mozzarella here too
  • Bread crumbs
  • Drizzle of Olive Oil

To make:

  1. If you don't have mashed potatoes, you'll need to start there. When I'm making mashed potatoes, I always make double so I can make potato pie the next day. For reference, you need about 1/2 bag of potatoes. 
  2. To your mashed potatoes, add 1 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano and 3 beaten eggs. Stir well.
  3. In a pie dish, drizzle a tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle bread crumbs on the bottom
  4. Spoon out the potato mixture to cover the bottom of the dish and flatten with your hands
  5. Cover the potatoes with Sliced Provolone
  6. Top the pie with another layer of potatoes
  7. With a fork, make little divets on the entire top of the pie
  8. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and more grated cheese
  9. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until golden
  10. Allow pie to rest for 10 minutes before serving
And there you go! If you make the pie, let me know what you think!

Happy Thanksgiving!
