Layered Potato (pan)cake

Once again my mother in law is visiting, so I have had time to look through recipes and get her input on how to make different things.  We found a recipe for a potato pancake, but the only thing we kept the same was the temperature and time to cook it. It was a lot of fun to make our own.

This is not a healthy thing. At all. It is drenched in butter and cheese :-D  We served it on the side with grilled brautwurst. So, if you would like something yummy, and don`t mind the calories, give this a try!

What you need:
30-50 g butter, melted
3-4 large potatoes
chives (fresh are better, but I didn`t have any)
2-3 onions
salt and pepper
cheddar cheese for topping

Slice the potatoes and the onions thinly. Lay the potatoes, overlapping, starting in the middle of a round oven dish and continuing until the bottom is covered.

Brush some butter over the top, and then scatter the onions and chives. Repeat with the layers until you reach the top of your dish or you run out of ingredients.

Heat the oven to 200 C and cook for 5 minutes.  Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the foil and increase the temperature to 230 C and cook another 15 to 20 minutes, until tender and the top is a golden brown.

Serve and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.
