Here it is!!!
10 large potatoes
1 medium onion
5 slices bacon
2 tsps. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup hot milk or evaporated milk (we always use whatever milk is in the house - either fat free or 2%)
Peel and grate fine the potatoes and onion.
Cut bacon cross-wise into narrow strips, fry till crisp. Add bacon to potatoes (you can add the fat, but we usually leave that out - we've also left out the bacon & it comes out fine as well).
Add hot milk.
Add beaten eggs one at a time.
Add salt & pepper to taste (better to under season as it's perfectly fine to salt/pepper it when it's done)
Heat greased (any kind of veggie oil is fine) baking dish in 400degree oven until grease is hot. Pour potato mixture into baking dish.
Bake at 400degrees for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 375degrees and bake 45 minutes more.
Cut into squares & serve hot with sour cream.
1) One of those dishes that's very good the next day.
2) Use old potatoes.
3) Depth of grated potato mix in the baking dish should be no less than 2.5 inches.
4) Start baking at high temp & reduce temp to complete.
Edited because I didn't credit a source: This recipe is from a Lithuanian cookbook originally published in Chicago in 1955 by the Lithuanian Catholic Press. My edition was printed in 1971. It's one of those cute little cookbooks with the spiral binding like church groups put together, but it's filled with great recipes. It's the 5th edition & it was put together by the wife of the Consul General of Lithuania at Chicago. She has a long list of charity works and awards in her own right as well.
