Potatoes with caramelized onions

To go along with the ribs on Saturday night we decided to cook an old favourite potato dish, this is one of Nancy's signature dishes and goes very well with pork.

This a simple dish to make tastes delicious and easy to cook for a crowd, in fact in some ways it was hard to cut down for just the two of us.

2 russet potatoes thinly sliced
1 onion thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 cup of grated Swiss cheese.
Salt and pepper

Add the olive oil and onion to a frying pan and cook slowly until the onion is caramelized but not too dark as it is going to cook in the oven.

caramelized onions
Put a layer of sliced potatoes in the bottom of an ovenproof dish season with salt and pepper then a layer of onion followed by the cheese, then repeat the layers finishing with the cheese.

Ready for the oven
Bake in a 350 oven until the potatoes are cooked through.  This will vary greatly depending the size and the number of layers.  This was a small dish and just two layers and took about 3/4 of an hour

This truly is a very delicious way to cook potatoes and is really an updated more sophisticated version of a childhood favourite panhaggerty.
