It is Pi[e] Day!
But not only that, with Saint Patrick’s Day being on Tuesday, I thought what better pie to make then an Irish pie.
I searched throughout Pinterest, and found this recipe which comes from A Spicy Perspective.
- 1 Sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry Thawed or Pie Crust
- 4 Tablespoons of Butter
- 7 Slices of Bacon, Chopped (I omitted this)
- 5 Potatoes-Peeled and Sliced Thin (I used only three)
- 1 Onion, Peeled and Sliced
- 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Dill
- 1/2 Cup of Heavy Cream
- Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the thawed puff pastry or pie crust in a 8-9 in pan and crimp the edges.
- Remove the excess dough and piece it along the rim if needed to make the rim in some places.
- Refrigerate until it is ready to fill.
- Place butter and bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté until bacon is crispy and toss in the onions.
- Follow with potatoes and dill.
- Season with 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper.
- Gently stir 3-5 mins.
- Spoon mixture into crust and drizzle with heavy cream.
- Bake on low rack for 35-45 mins-or until the potatoes are fork-tender and crust golden.
- Rest for 10 mins and then sprinkle with fresh chives.
Thoughts After Baking:
I omitted the bacon as I don’t like the way that bacon grease smells after cooking. Then after last year’s potato dish didn’t cook all the way through, I decided to use less potatoes this year. And I added all the chives as I didn’t want them to go bad.
This turned out really delicious, although it was missing one thing: cheese! I added a bit later and this made a great slice of pie-a slice that I will be eating on Saint Patrick’s Day too!
