Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
or more as needed
2 large onions
sliced
1 leeks
sliced
*
4 cloves garlic
minced
1 teaspoon thyme
dried
*
100 grams mozzarella cheese
cubed
150 grams cheddar cheese
grated
250 grams creme fraiche
or sour cream
*
1000 grams potatoes
medium-size, peeled and very finely sliced, place in water until you are ready to add them in the layers in the pie
sea salt
to taste, to be added between layers of the pie
*
black pepper
fresh and ground, to be added between layers of the pie
*
1 sheet puff pastry
1 large eggs
¼ cup milk, low-fat

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal)/350°-375°F/4-5 gas mark.

Heat a little oil in a heavy-based - preferably non-stick - pan and gently sauté the onions and leek until caramelized, stirring now and again, about half an hour; remove the pan from the heat; add the minced garlic and thyme to the pan and mix to combine the ingredients.

Combine all the cheeses with the crème fraiche or sour cream.

Place several layers of potato in the base of a well-greased round oven dish and season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper; top with half of the caramelized onions; add several dollops of the cheese mixture (there is no need to spread this out as the cheeses will spread out as the pie starts to cook and the cheeses melt); repeat these steps, ending with the cheese layer.

Cut a round of pastry to cover and slightly overlap the dish in which the pie is to be cooked.

Beat together the egg and milk, and brush the egg-wash all over the pastry.

Cook the pie in the lower part of the oven for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Serve the pie with a salad greens.

A decadent potato pie. Buttery and flakey pastry, cheesy, juicy and tender potatoes. We had it for dinner last night, the leftover for lunch today, it's even better. After reheating in the oven, the puff pastry on top tasted crisper. This is definitely the kind of recipe that everyone will give you a big "wow" and want second scoop.

My favorite things! Potatoes, cheese and onions all in one delicious dish. It was easy to make and tasted scrumptious.
