Recipe for cooking potato casserole with broccoli and hard cheese in the oven

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Separate the broccoli into small florets.

2. Put the broccoli in boiling water, bring to a boil and blanch for 2 minutes over low heat. Then discard the cabbage in a sieve and put it in ice water to preserve the beautiful green color of the vegetables and stop the heat treatment process.

3. Wash the potatoes, peel them, cut into thin slices.

4. Place the potatoes in a deep frying pan with heated vegetable oil. Stirring occasionally, fry the vegetables over medium heat until golden brown on all sides. You don’t need to cook the potatoes until done, we just need to get an appetizing golden crust on top.

5. Then transfer the fried potatoes to a baking dish greased with vegetable oil. I used a frying pan with a removable handle that can be baked in the oven, so I skipped this step. Add blanched broccoli to the potatoes.

6. Mix the chicken eggs and cream in a deep bowl.

7. Add cloves of garlic passed through a press, salt, ground black pepper and spices for potatoes to taste. Mix the ingredients with a whisk until smooth.

8. Pour the creamy egg mixture over the vegetables.

9. Cover the baking dish with a heat-resistant lid or foil, send it to the oven preheated to 180 degrees for 25 minutes.

10. After the specified time, carefully remove the casserole from the oven. Remove the lid or foil, sprinkle the vegetables with grated hard cheese. Return the casserole to the oven for another 5 minutes, so that the cheese on top melts and browns.

11. Sprinkle the finished dish with finely chopped dill and serve hot immediately after cooking.

The casserole can be a full-fledged independent dish or a hearty side dish for meat or fish.

Bon appetit!
