Cooking PotMETHOD

  1. Mash the potatoes with the cabbage or kale and cream. Season well with salt and pepper.

  2. Slice the onions and fry until soft and lightly bronzed.

  3. Use a spatula and press the potato and cabbage/kale mixture into an even layer on top of the onions. Fry for 4-5 minutes until crispy and well-browned.
