When I was in college one of my friends invited us to dinner at her Hungarian grandmother’s home. I remember that she made the most delicious casserole with potatoes, eggs and ham. Thanks to the power of the internet I believe this dish is called Rakott Krumpli.
Hosting Easter dinner at our house left us plenty of ham and boiled eggs so I thought I would try to make this casserole myself.
There are many recipes on the internet for this dish but overall basically the same. You simply layer sliced boiled potatoes, sliced eggs, thinly sliced ham and sour cream in a buttered casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake removing the foil at the end to until the top is golden brown.
A couple of the recipes called for paprika, a traditional Hungarian spice, and some added cheddar cheese to the top and since I had a nice white cheddar on hand I decided to add it as well. I have to say it turned out great and I will definitely be making this again. I can’t believe I waited so long to try it.
Here’s a link to the recipe:
