Potato gratin in the oven

Servings: 8 Cooking time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Baked in the oven, the recipe of which is described below,Turkish cuisine. In Turkey, it is called a "pie of grated potatoes." But it reminds me of our classic casserole. It took me to cook it a few times to learn this recipe: potatoes, which I used was too juicy, why ground meat is not held in the middle of the cake, and was buried in a potato.

As a result, I came to the conclusion that it is necessary to express the excess potato and onion juice, using a colander (or screen). And the casserole turned out much better.

Furthermore, this recipe is usefulround split mold for the cake - it is easily removed from the casserole, which is then conveniently cut into slices like a cake. However, if you do not have such a form, fit any other similar size.
