Potato pancake in the pan: recipe for a rustic and fibrous dish

By liliaturcin5

Potato pie in a pan is a great and tasty second course that the whole family will love. It prepares in minutes and is an exceptional fridge dump: we filled it with cooked ham and mozzarella, but you can vary the meats and cheeses according to your tastes or what you have at home. For a perfect end result, use red potatoes and grate them finely and press them well to lose as much water as possible. The only problem with this cake is when you have to flip it, but if you have a double omelette pan available, it will be a breeze. You can also prepare it in a vegetarian version without ham. Find out how with our simple step-by-step recipe.

If you want to achieve a final effect reminiscent of an omelet, you can also add 1-2 eggs to the potato mixture.

For the gluten-free version, you can replace the 00 flour with rice or chickpea flour. If you wish, you can also add a pinch of spices, such as turmeric, sweet paprika or curry.

You can replace the mozzarella on a pizza with fresh fiordilatte: in this case, cut it into slices and let it drain in a colander for at least an hour. The cheese should be dry.
