Irish potato pie


Savory Irish Potato Pie Recipe Crispy crust layered with potatoes, onions, and bacon. The Saint Patricks Day favorite is a must have at an Irish dinner!

Prep Time:15 minutes

Cook Time:55 minutes

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

4 Tbsp butter

7 thick sliced bacon, chopped

5 potatoes (4 large), peeled and sliced thin

1 onion, peeled and sliced thin

1 Tbsp fresh dill

1/2 cup heavy cream

Salt and Pepper

Chive for garnish

Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the thawed puff pastry in a 8-9 inch tart pan and crimp the edges. Remove the excess dough and piece it along the rim if needed to make the rim even in some places. Refrigerate the crust until ready to fill.

Place the butter and bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté until the bacon is crispy then toss in the onions, followed by the potatoes and dill. Season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp ground pepper. Gently stir 3-5 minutes, to mix the onions and potatoes and coat in bacon grease. (The potatoes dont need to be cooked through.) Then spoon the mixture into the crust and drizzle with heavy cream.

Bake on the low rack in the oven for 35-45 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender and the crust is golden. Rest for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with chopped chive and cut.
