    Hello- I am looking for a recipe for Garlic Potatoes that I had while in Finland for a month. They were very good- rich, and buttery and garlicy, but I can not find a recipe anywhere. They always came with the meals that we would order at restaurants. I don't know if they are strictly Finnish or not, but would LOVE the recipe. Thank you in advance!

    Well, one good thing came out of the forums getting messed up: some interesting topics have cropped up again! icon_biggrin.gif

    The basic recipe for Finnish garlic potatoes:

    1 kg (about 2 lbs 3 oz) floury potatoes
    1 onion (optional - some use just potatoes and garlic)
    4 cloves garlic (or to taste - some use 2 whole heads!)
    1 ts salt
    1/2 ts black pepper
    300-400 ml (1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups) heavy cream

    Wash and peel potatoes; slice thinly. Peel onion and cut into thing rings. Mince garlic cloves.
    Layer potato and onion slices in a buttered pan (e.g. 13x9 - I prefer a shallow, large pan over a deep one personally!), sprinkling salt, pepper and garlic between each layer. Pour cream on top of the whole thing. Bake at 200 C (400 F) for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft and golden on top.

    If you can find frozen sliced potatoes, they work well too and make this really quick to put together. And everything really is subject to taste with this one: some like it more creamy and some like it drier; some like thicker potato slices (and longer baking time!), some like the onion and some don't... You can also add touches of rosemary or thyme, for example. icon_smile.gif

    I was thinking the same thing, looking through old posts in Breads. Anyway, this recipe sounds wonderful.
