One That Got Away

The Friends and Staff of Reston Regional Library published a cookbook in the winter.  It was a struggle getting enough recipes to make it work as we battled snow and winter malaise. Ironically, since then, recipes are popping up all over!  (You can get a copy of the coobkbook by e-mailing us for library pickup, or by clicking on the sidebar link to do it through Amazon).

One of our faithful contributors, cashiers, and volunteers used the cookbook as an opportunity to publish old family recipes -- and then bought the cookbooks for her various nieces so THEY would have all of the old family recipes, plus more!

And of course, one of the nieces said, "you forgot one."  So here it is, and we hope you enjoy it!  Thank you, Vicki!

Boil 5 medium potatoes (with skin on)
5 eggs
½ cup grated cheese (I use Romano)
1 pkg. solid Mozzarella cheese
Flavored bread crumbs
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Onion powder (optional)

Peel skin from potatoes after boiling. Mash potatoes using one egg at
a time. Mix grated cheese while mashing. Mix well. Grease pie plate
with margarine. Put a layer of potatoes on bottom of pie plate, then
slice cheese (Mozzarella) and put on top of potatoes. Keep on layering. Leave a
½ inch on top. Cut up margarine into tiny pieces, then place on top.
Sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Cook at 350 degrees for ½ hour until
golden color.
