Marcy’s Hungarian Scalloped Potatoes
Marcy Goldman, author of The Best of
BetterBaking.com, says, “I got this recipe
years ago from a cousin who made it to please
her Hungarian-born husband when they
were first married. It is simply outstanding.”
8-10 red potatoes, boiled, 1/2 cup freshly grated
cooled and sliced Parmesan cheese
Salt, pepper and paprika 4 scallions, minced fine
diced, about 1 cup Cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange a layer of sliced
potatoes in a large casserole. Sprinkle generously
with salt, pepper and paprika. Toss on some of
the sausage, dollops of sour cream, melted butter,
hard-boiled eggs, Parmesan and scallions. Continue
layering, ending with potatoes.
2. Sprinkle the final layer with Cheddar, paprika
and bread crumbs and/or Parmesan; pour milk
through gaps in the dish (this will keep it moist).
3. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the top is
bubbling and golden. Let rest 10 minutes before
serving. Freezes well, or make a day ahead and
bake when ready to serve. Makes 8-10 servings.
