Nancy J.'s StoryMy 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.
large white potatoes
small can evaporated milk
1 -1/2 tsp
salt...pepper to taste.
grated ,medium onion
sour cream and or applesauce to serve
1Cut 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.
2Now 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.
