Irish Potato Pie

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chives

Directions:

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the thawed puff pastry or pie crust in a 8-9 in pan and crimp the edges.
  3. Remove the excess dough and piece it along the rim if needed to make the rim in some places.
  4. Refrigerate until it is ready to fill.
  5. Place butter and bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté until bacon is crispy and toss in the onions.
  6. Follow with potatoes and dill.
  7. Season with 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper.
  8. Gently stir 3-5 mins.
  9. Spoon mixture into crust and drizzle with heavy cream.
  10. Bake on low rack for 35-45 mins-or until the potatoes are fork-tender and crust golden.
  11. 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!

Thoughts Before Baking:

I love pie!

castiel-i-need-pie

So when I find a recipe that isn’t chocolate, I just have to try it out.

So I know that this pie is a “summer” pie because of the fruit, but I live in CA. We have summer fruit all year long.

Thoughts After Baking:

My niece wanted to make the pie with me, so instead of doing the crust from my Apple Pie recipe, I decided to buy the a premade one.

bigmistake

I bought the pillsbury dough which did not turn out well. The dough was hard and dry. When I tried to follow the cooking directions,  it almost burned at 40 degrees. And then it tasted disgusting, like plastic.

horrible

The pie filling was good, not super sweet but that is okay. However, you need to eat this pie fast. It does not hold up well for the next day.
