Savoy cabbage-cheese-casserole with farmhouse hard cheese

from Germany


Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

Peel onions, cut in half and slice. Slice potatoes and bacon as well. Then fry bacon with 1 tablespoon of butter, stir in the onion slices and fry for another 3 – 4 minutes.

Grease a small oven-proof casserole dish. Add the ingredients to the dish in a layered effect starting with savoy cabbage, potatoes, bacon-onion-mix and cheese. Season lightly. Sprinkle some cheese on top.

Carefully pour hot stock over the casserole and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Cook covered on middle rack for 25-30 minutes, then another 10-12 minutes without cover. Take out and serve immediately.
