Potato Cats

Potato gattò is also known as potato pie or potato soufflé. As you want to call it, it is a very good recipe, which can be used as an appetizer or as a side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg potatoes;
  • 2 eggs;
  • 50 g butter;
  • 50 g parmesan cheese;
  • 100 g mozzarella cheese;
  • 100 g smoked provola cheese;
  • 50 g mortadella;
  • 50 g cooked ham;
  • 5 spoonfuls of latte;
  • breadcrumbs;
  • salt;

Procedure

Boil the potatoes in salted water with all the skin until they are soft. Once cooked, drain, peel and mash with a potato masher. Incorporate 35 g of butter and milk.

Cut half of the mortadella and half of the cooked ham into strips. Leave the other half whole.

Grate half of the provola and cut the rest into slices. Cut the mozzarella into cubes and let it drain.

Mix the eggs with the potatoes, the two cold cuts in strips, the grated provola and 25 g of parmesan cheese. Salted and peppered.

Butter an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs, removing the excess. Fill it with half of the potato mixture and level it. Cover this layer with the mozzarella, the provola and the sliced cold cuts. Cover with the remaining potato mixture and sprinkle the surface of the gattò with the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and some remaining butter flakes.

Bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes.

Remove the potato gattò from the oven and serve hot.
