This is a classic recipe reinvented. It was inspired by our friend Gloria, who got it from her friend Jeanie. Needless to say it is delicious. Make it with butter when serving a dairy meal; with olive oil or margarine when you need a parve side dish.
2 large onions
4 potatoes sliced thin using a mandolin or sharp knife
1 ½ sticks melted margarine, melted butter or 1 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Optional: 1 tsp. chopped chervil or rosemary
Grate onions or slice very thin. Slice potatoes about 1/8" thick Seasib with paprika, parsley, salt and pepper
In a ceramic casserole dish or pie dish, layer potatoes, onions and butter or oil mixture
Repeat layering about 3 times, ending with butter mixture.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Bake for 20 minutes then reduce to 375 for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are done.
If making this as a dairy side, consider adding a some parmesan cheese
