Cook Time:

My husband was Lithuanian.
He loved my cooking! especially this dish.
This was his mothers Wisc. recipe, from the thirtys.
A restaurant in Chicago, that served this wonderful dish was Sharko"s, on W. 63 St.
Closed in the 90's.
But I think they had another one in Villa Park IL.???
I have many Polish and Lithuanian recipes, from his wondewrful family.
This is one of the best.


1/2 lb
eggs, beaten
large white potatoes
small can evaporated milk
1 -1/2 tsp
salt...pepper to taste.
1/2 c
grated ,medium onion
sour cream and or applesauce to serve

Directions Step-By-Step

Cut bacon into small pieces and fry till almost crisp.
Grate potatoes into a bowl, drain off all the liquid into a small bowl.

NOW GRANDMAS TIP: Leave the above liquid to sit, then drain off just the clear liquid .Save the thick liquid at the bottom. Return this thick liquid to the bowl of grated potatoes.
Now add the eggs, and mix well, add the evaporated milk, salt and pepper, 1/2 cup milk and the grated onions. Mix well. Pour into a greased flat pan with sides.
The height of potatoes in the pan should not be over 1-1/2 inches high.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 1-1/2 hours.
Cut into squares to serve. Welike it with sour cream , and or applesauce.
It can be cut and fried with ,eggs, and bsacon the next day!.
This is a keeper.......... if you like potatoes!

These are in the oven right now. :)

I couldnt drain the potatoes, because they started turning color so I just put it all together quick. Is there a secret to draining them to get the starch?
I also was not sure if you cover them while they bake? So I have them covered for 45 minutes and then I will uncover them and sprinkle with the bacon. Hope that works! :)
These look so delicious! I plan on serving them to the family tonight. :) I will report back soon! :)

Wilkenator.. you need only speak for yourself andquit being such an ASS!!! Many enjoy reading the comments.. if you didn't read them(which you could have stopped at any time) you would not know to comment how you did. You know the recipe is going to have high carbs anyway thus not as healthy as others. The great thing is we can all choose what WE like... like you choose to be an ass..
