Brown Onion Potatoes

Brown Onion Potatoes ~ Only 3 Ingredients to make this creamy, very tasty potato bake ! #PotatoRecipe #3IngredientRecipe

The kids and Roy want to watch a DVD (like in now, while I'm typing up this post..) and they found my QUEEN  CD in the slot (I love listening to my kind of music when I am alone during the day - I switch on the surround sound system and play it really, really loud - to the extend that the windows vibrate!) Ok, so just before they removed my CD I asked them to play the song "I want to break free" before watching their DVD. 

Somehow, my love for '80s music, rubbed off on Cheri - but not Dimitri .. I turned up the volume so high, first he sighed, then as the song went on, he rolled his eyes {At this point I enjoyed watching him more than listening to the song}, if you are familiar with this particular song, you'll know there are some of the lyrics which sounds as if it is the end, but just then old Freddy cranks it up again! Unbelievable, how much this irritated Dimitri .. but anyhow, last week he was playing (and singing along) a very boring whatever he is into song, so I just got him back tonight !

Right, back to my recipe - Tired of your usual potato side dish, or rice, or mash or dinner rolls...??

Then try this quick and easy recipe of mine - 3 Ingredients !  Roy and I can easily finish a large dish like this by ourselves.

I usually boil the peeled, sliced potatoes in salt water for 10 minutes in my pressure cooker - it is about half cooked when I transfer the dish to the oven.

Brown Onion Potatoes

6 Large Potatoes, peeled and sliced 5 - 7mm thick
1 Packet Brown Onion Soup powder
1 cup Fresh Cream

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Par-boil the potatoes until half cooked in salt water.
3.) Mix the Brown Onion Soup powder with the Fresh Cream.
4.) Drain the potatoes and place a single layer on the bottom of the oven dish - it can overlap slightly - pour half of the cream mixture over the potato layer - repeat with another potato layer, followed with the remaining cream mixture.
5.) Bake 45 - 60 minutes, uncovered, until soft.

I suppose this is not really a master recipe - but it is definitely one of our favorite potato dishes.

  12. Hey Linda,
    The potatoes recipe looks great, but I love the Dimitri story. My kids get in my car and want to change the station right away. I just laugh and sing louder. ( I am a horrible singer, but I love singing with my songs. ) It's fun watching them laughing at me.
    Thanks so much for linking each week at Adorned From Above's Link party.
    Have a great week.
