2 potatoes (average size), 100 g squacquerone cheese, 100 g ham, salt, fresh thyme, breadcrumbs, olive oil, a pat of butter, original Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
First off, switch on the oven at a temperature of 170°-180°, so that you have it enough warm when you’ll need it.
Secondly, make a cross both on the inferior and superior surface of the potatoes and start to peel them in stripes, from the top towards the bottom.
Once finished the operation, chop the potatoes in small cubes. Roll the ham and cut it in small pieces.
At this stage, put the potatoes in a non-stick pan, adding a bit of olive oil and keeping the heat low. After stirring them, add ham. It’s very important that during this step you don’t cook potatoes completely, but only halfway through, because the cooking has to be completed in the oven.
Put both ham and potatoes in a pan and let them cool down for some minutes, then add squacquerone cheese and blend it all together with a spoon, from the top towards the bottom.
Butter the baking tray, then pour the mixture without pressing it, because it’s important that the pie remains soft even during the cooking. Sprinkle some breadcrumbs and put everything in the oven for 10 minutes more or less, until the surface becomes a bit golden.
In the end, remove the baking tray from the oven and decorate the plate with some squacquerone cheese and fresh thyme. The final touch is fundamental and it’s the most special step: for a excellent Potato pie with original Balsamic Vinegar of Modena to make it all as tasty as it could possibly get!
Enjoy your meal!
