Staffordshire Buttery Potato Cake

This is a great versatile recipe by 99 Station St Restaurant in Burton. They have kindly let me share this with you & you can add your own touches. Here we have added a Gruyere cheese topping.

2lb potatoes, ideally Maris Piper or another variety between waxy & floury.
2 oz butter
Seasoning or extras e.g. cheese, herbs or bacon
This recipe is one of those easy but easy to get wrong recipes. Use good ingredinets and keep it simple. Preheat your oven to about 170/gas5 and thinly slice your potatoes and soak in cold water. Lightly butter a suitable dish or cake tin. Layer the potaoes with a dot of butter btween each layer. Season each layer as required. Once you have used all the potato and butter, seal the top with a layer of greaseproof paper and bake until a skewer easily goes through all the layers, probably 1 1/2 hours. Serve with a casserole or pot roast.
