Layered Potato Cake

Made this potato cake with the potatoes that came in our CSA basket this week. I love how the inside is soft and almost creamy and the top is crisp and crunchy. P and I just starting eating dairy again so I added a little cheese to the top but it would be just as tasty without.

Layered Potato Cake

3 - 4 medium potatoes
1/2 onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 - 3 Tbsp water
1 tsp nutmeg
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup goat cheese (optional)

Slice the potatoes and onion thinly on a mandolin. Use 1 Tbsp of olive oil to coat an 8 inch pie plate. Place one layer of potatoes in the bottom of the pie plate. Add a few slices of onion and some garlic. Add a little nutmeg, salt and pepper. Repeat layers finishing with a layer of potato, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add water and then pour remaining olive oil on top of potatoes. Top with goat cheese. Bake covered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes then bake uncovered for another 30 minutes.
