(Firinda Mantarli Patates)

Potato - Mushroom  Casserole
3 medium yellow potatoes, boiled, peeled, cut in big chunks

1/2 cup brown, mushrooms, cleaned, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Bell pepper, sliced
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp oregano

First, press on the chunks of potatoes with fork to break, do not mash!

Saute the onion and mushrooms with olive oil for about few minutes in the medium sized pot. Add the red pepper. Cook for about 2 more minutes. Turn the heat off.

Add the potato, egg, crushed red pepper, oregano, salt and pepper into the pot. Mix with a spoon. Place the mixture in a individual oven dishes. Cover the top with the grated cheese.

Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) and cook until the top is a light golden. Serve the Potato - Mushroom Casserole while still warm as a side dish.

This was a big hit - but the was confused as to whether I should layer the mushrooms/onions on the potatoes or mix them altogether - the recipe did not specify. I mixed them and it was very good but I was just curious if that was correct

Hi Melissa,
Yes, it was correct:)
"Add the potato, egg, crushed red pepper, oregano, salt and pepper into the pot. Mix them with a spoon."
The pot is the one you cook mushrooms in:)
