Classic potato casserole in a multicooker

Potato casserole is a great alternative to mashed potatoes. There are many different recipes for this dish: with meat stuffing, sausages, mushrooms, etc. However, we will prepare a classic potato casserole in a multicooker, which significantly simplifies the process. The peculiarity of this recipe lies in thinly slicing the potatoes, which reduces cooking time and enhances the taste. And if you add rosemary or nutmeg, the casserole will resemble a French gourmet dish called gratin. Such a casserole is a wonderful side dish for meat and fish dishes. Let's start cooking.

Prepare all the ingredients for a classic potato casserole in a multicooker. The specified amount of ingredients is for a small dish. If you have a large family, feel free to double the amount of ingredients. It is better to use young potatoes for a better taste. Not all varieties are suitable, for example, do not use potato for puree, otherwise we will get puree. You need to use a firm and sturdy potato, with firm flesh and smooth skin without a greenish tint. A large size of the tuber indicates the use of excessive chemicals in the growth of potatoes. You can replace milk with low-fat cream, and the eggs should be medium-sized, category C1. It is better to use hard varieties of cheese, such as Parmesan or Gruyere. As for spices, I used black ground pepper and nutmeg, but you can use rosemary if you like it, or a special potato seasoning mix - it will also be delicious.

Peel and rinse the onion. Cut the bulb into large but thin half-slices. By the way, if you start crying while cutting onions, just talk or sing :) This will cleanse the taste receptors and nasopharynx from phytoncides. Turn on the Baking program on the multicooker and fry the onion until golden brown in butter. Then remove it from the multicooker.

Peel the potatoes as well, rinse them in water. If the potatoes are early, you can simply wash them with a brush - the young skin will come off on its own. Slice the tubers thinly with a slicer. Mix with the onion. If you, like me, don't have a special vegetable slicer, you can use a grater with a slicing side. Grating the potatoes on a coarse grater is also allowed. Then it is necessary to immerse the potatoes in cold water, leave it for a couple of minutes, this way we will get rid of excess starch. Then dry it on a paper towel.

Now we need to assemble our classic potato casserole. Pour slightly more than half of the potatoes into the multicooker bowl, level it. Then add the onions, pour the egg-milk mixture. Spread the second part of the potatoes, sprinkle with cheese. In my version, there are 2 layers of potatoes, but if you have taken a larger quantity of ingredients, there should be at least 4 layers: potatoes + onion + dressing, and so on 4 times, but you don't need to pour the egg-milk mixture on top, just sprinkle with cheese.

Prepare a classic potato casserole in the Baking program of the multicooker for 1 hour (the more ingredients, the longer it will bake, so it's worth checking for readiness with a thin knife or fork: when pierced, the potatoes should be soft). Flip the cooked classic casserole onto a plate, sprinkle with herbs, and serve hot. This is a wonderful side dish for many hot dishes with beef, pork, and poultry. The classic potato casserole also goes well with fish. Enjoy your meal!
