Ingredients

  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 ½ tsp oil
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 3 Tbsp half and half
  • ½ Lawry’s seasoning, or your favorite seasoning
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 Tbsp butter, sliced
  • 2-3 Tbsp favorite herbs, chopped
  • 5-6 campari tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups Mozzarella cheese, grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Peel the potatoes. Slice thin with a slicer. Cover potatoes with cold water.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil; add the onion and sautee. Add ground pork. Saute until meat is browned, breaking up the meat as you mix (about 4-5).
  • Add the ¾ tsp salt, ¼ tsp pepper, ½ Lawry’s seasoning (you can use Vegeta, Mrs. Dash or whatever your favorite seasoning is) and garlic. Mix well.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes. Pat dry, add to a 9"x13" casserole dish. Season with the 1 tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper (or to taste) add half & half. Toss and spread evenly.
  • Spread the ground meat over the potatoes.
  • Add the sliced butter over the meat. Add your favorite herb(s). Top with the tomatoes and shredded cheese.
  • Cover casserole with foil. Bake 35-40 minutes, check for readiness; with a sharp knife pierce the potatoes, if soft, they’re ready. Bake another 3-5 minutes without foil so cheese starts to become golden. Serve immediately.
