We are trying to lay off the sweets so I made a potato, onion, spinach (POS) pie for the layered challenge.
I started with garlic to mix with the spinach.
What I should have started first is the caramelized onions. I've never made them before and they are easy and delicious, but they do take at least 30 minutes to make. I also should have made about 3x as much. They really cook down.
Once the garlic had browned, I cooked a ton of spinach. Again, I could have cooked twice as much since it cooks down so much.
I sliced and boiled potatoes and they were the first layer in my pie.
A few clumps of goat cheese and salt and pepper went down next.
I over shot on how much potatoes so I added another layer next.
While the onions cooked the spinach cooled. I added the spinach next...
then more goat cheese.
Here are the onions almost fully caramelized.
I added those on top and got ready to top it all off.
I used puff pastry rather than pie dough and it cooked up fluffy and wonderful.
I put a heart on top since I love to cook and I love my life!
The layers were visible and it was quite tasty. I should have added more flavorful ingredients. It was a little bland overall. More caramelized onions, more seasoning on the potatoes, and perhaps some more complexity with an additional cheese (Parmesan?) would have done the trick.
