What do kids love?
Here is my favorite potato pie. Prepare it on a Sunday evening. Monday morning will be ready for school…
1 package of “filo” pastry (we’ll use just one)
2 kg of potatoes
1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 cup of flour
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
Cut the leek into small pieces.
Mix together the potatoes, the leek, the flour and ¾ of the cup with olive oil.
Add the parsley and season according to your taste.
Sprinkle the bottom of a frying pan with some olive oil so that the “filo” doesn’t stick.
Lay down the “filo” pastry. Manage with your fingers to fill the entire pan.
Pour the mix on it. Preheat the oven in 180C and bake for about 1 hour, until it has a nice, golden color.
If yours take longer to bake, don’t worry. Some potatoes need more time than others.
When ready, cut into small pieces. It is eaten hot but I think that cold will be firm enough for your kid to hold it with a napkin, the next day, at school.
