Potato-Oat Cake

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

From Good Food Magazine, March 1986. This is really not a cake, but more like a frittata or a quiche. This can be cut in wedges and alternated with wedges of Spinach Pie on 2 serving plates.

I really liked this recipe. I am not quite sure of what it reminded me of, but it was quick, easy, and good. I did pare down the recipe for 2 servings, so I didn't need to do the sliding plate trick. The ratio of potato/egg/oatmeal/onion was perfect as written.

  2. Combine potatoes, onion, and remaining ingredients except oil in medium mixing bowl.
  3. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spread potato mixture evenly in skillet. Reduce heat to medium; cook covered until top is nearly set and bottom lightly browned, 6-8 minutes. Invert cake onto platter and slide back into skillet. Cook until bottom is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges. Transfer to serving plate and serve hot.
