Layered potatoes (Rakott krumpli)
Rakott krumpli or layered potatoes are a typical, Hungarian, baked casserole-type dish. It’s made from only a few ingredients, but it contains all the main flavours of the Hungarian cuisine, this is why it’s so popular in our country. Layered potatoes belong to those dishes that accompany people from the childhood as a returning course of family lunches or dinners. Everybody has some kind of associations with it, and tends to look for the familier tastes of the childhood. It’s a so called “granny food”- for everyone the best layered potates are the ones which were cooked by the grandmother. If you search for layered potatoes recipes on the Internet, you will find that they are much the same with only little differences.
