Savory Far Breton is a custardy cake with prunes, raisin, potatoes, eggs, flour and BACON. This kind of dish is extremely foreign to me. It looks like German Kugel. Coming from an Italian background I have never eaten a potato cake before.
Did I like it? If I grew up with it I would call it a comfort food, but I didn't grow up with it… so I would describe it as something that is not a quiche and not a cake. The texture limbo of this dish was unsettling to me. My husband and daughter enjoyed it. My son found it strange too.
I served it with kale, but I felt I should of added some cheese or an egg dish to it. I did not find this dish to stand on it's own, maybe if it had cheese in it. Dorie claimed it can be "a main event." But I think some beef stew or sausage… more of a German meal would have gone nicely with this…
Salty-Sweet Potato Far… interesting idea, but not a repeat for my house.
