Sydney's recipe for scalloped potatoes with Swiss cheese reminded me of this recipe, from my "Keeper" file. This was a favorite of mine before I started eating low carb. Feel free to cheat and used a bag of Orieda hash browns, if you'd like. I have and it works just as well. And, if you don't like Swiss cheese, use your favorite. It's all good! Very Happy

Swiss Fried Potatoes

This is from Betty Crocker's New International Cookbook: The recipe states, "Potatoes are cooked, shredded and flavored with Gruyere cheese, and then pressed to form a flat, crisp cake that is famous the world over."

4 med. potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.)
1/4 c. margarine or butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 c. diced Gruyere or Swiss cheese
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
2 T. water

Heat 1 inch salted water (in measures of 1/2 t. salt per 1 c. water) to boiling. Add unpeeled potatoes. Heat to boiling again; reduce heat. Cover and cook until tender, 30-35 minutes. Peel and shred potatoes or cut into 1/4-inch strips.

Heat margarine in 10-inch skillet until melted. Add potatoes, onion and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook uncovered over medium heat, turning frequently, until potatoes start to brown, about 10 minutes. (Add 1 to 2 T. margarine to prevent sticking, if necessary.)

Press potatoes with spatula to form flat cake; sprinkle with water. Cover and cook over low heat, without stirring, until bottom is golden brown and crusty, about 10 minutes. Place inverted platter over skillet; invert potatoes onto platter. 4 to 6 servings.

All these recipes sound so good! Did you ever wonder why cookbooks don't publish the calories per serving for all these yummy things? So is the rule of thumb that if it sounds yummy it must be fattening??? Laughing Laughing

I like to believe that if I can't see it, it must not exist. Using that logic, this recipe must be carb and calorie free. I wish!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
