When I first started to read this recipe I was excited. Bacon, potatoes,
flour and egg batter. Then came the prunes and raisins. Although
I had all the ingredients, it took me a week to decide whether or not
to prepare the recipe. I thought about leaving out the fruit but
decided to go for it. The recipe is really very simple to make and since
I was too lazy to take out my food processor, the hardest part was
grating the potatoes on a box grater.
Hubby enjoyed it and I did taste the far (after picking out the fruit) and
it wasn't bad. That said, Hubby is on his own with the rest of it. It baked
up quite nicely and the aroma was wonderful. I would like to make this again
sometime, but I would use other ingredients instead of fruit. I also think
cheese would make a wonderful addition. I am anxious to see what
everyone else thought of this recipe.
I kept an open mind to this one, in part because I could not
begin to guess how this was going to taste. That helped the cause.
|Oh, how I love my Cuisinart......|
|Utterly no clue how this one is going to end....|
Hubby and I have been enjoying baked and mashed cauliflower
lately so I thought it would be fun to do a "side by side"
comparison and prepare this both ways.
The results ? I did enjoy the cauliflower as much, if not more.
I simply simply substituted almond flour in lieu of regular. I had to
add a bit more liquid than the potato version, so used half and half.
The results very much reminded me of a sort of warm raisin bun or scone,
and it was a unique combo that we enjoyed and will absolutely make again.
This is officially getting file under the "who knew ?" category.
My favorite category :)
And as usual, Dorie knew. That's who.
Happy French Friday ~
