Recipes from the Grapevine Cottage
From "Wing King" Jim Kromer....
This recipe is not an exact science. It is a tasty treat that a couple or family can make. There is a lot of play in the recipe and the outcome will be fine even if you don't follow it to the letter. Just open the wine and have fun.
Approximately 1 loaf of white bread cut into 1 inch squares
If you didn't notice, this recipe is simple and is excellent with many variations. Also, it is meant to be prepared with a good glass of wine and a lot of experimenting.
Skin, cut, and boil potatoes until tender, as if you were making mashed. Melt 1/4 pound of butter and add celery and onion with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Cook until tender. Remove from heat. Add bread until mixture is absorbed. Add eggs to mixture and stir until incorporated. Make sure the eggs do not cook. Add potatoes and mix/mash.
The key here is the onion/celery/butter mixture to bread/potato. You can see if you have too much of one or the other and just add as necessary. Add chicken stock while mixing until the consistency is of a dry dough. Its easy to tell — the key is not making it too wet. If you do, add more bread. The mixture should be a light brown.
Add to a baking dish, top with the remaining butter and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or more if you like the crispy outer skin that forms like I do.
