I couldn't find this among all the potato and onion recipes and it is really quite good. I don't really like potatoes while my boyfriend would eat them everyday if he could - this is one of the ways I will eat them so he can have them once a week. I got this off of MSN. The recipe calls for a bread crumb topping but I have made it without and it is still fabulous. I will serve this with roast chicken or ham.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 6 medium onions, each cut in half and sliced thinly
- 14 1⁄2 ounces chicken broth
- 3 lbs yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 3 slices firm white bread, coarsely grated into crumbs
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped and packed
- In nonstick 12-inch skillet heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook 1 hour or until tender and deep golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and cook for 1 minute, stirring.
- Recipe can be prepared up to this point a day ahead. Cover and refrigerate onions until ready to use.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss potato slices with pepper and onion mixture. Transfer potato mixture to shallow 3 1/2 quart casserole dish or 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish. Cover casserole and bake 1 hour or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
- Meanwhile, in the same skillet, heat remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil over medium/high heat. Add bread crumbs and cook five minutes or until toasted, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat, stir in parsley.
- To serve, uncover potatoes and sprinkle with bread crumb mixture.
This was incredibly good! I made this exactly as posted, except I halved the recipe and cooked it in a 9-inch-square pan. I used my mandolin to slice the onions and potatoes really thin. I did not use the bread crumb topping either, but did sprinkle some parsley on the potatoes for color. The potatoes smelled heavenly, they were so tender and delicious! I think this would be wonderful for a holiday dinner, or any meal that you want to spruce up. Thanks for sharing this keeper! Made for Spring PAC 2011.
