How to Make Potato and Salami Cheesecake


  • 1Boil potatoes for about 45 min. or until tender. This recipe state to peel after they cooked I didn't I peeled and quartered them and they were fine. So either way.
  • 2Butter the bottom and sides of 12-inch springform pan , bottom and sides.
    Then dust the bottom and sides with 1/4 cup breadcrumbs.
  • 3Preheat oven to 400.
  • 4Drain and peel the potatoes and pass them through a food mill or ricer into a very large bowl. ( I gently used a masher to break them up and used a hand mixture the mix when I added the egg mixture below instead of food mill and it worked great.)
  • 5Gently stir in the egg mixture, do not overstir, just bring it all together.
  • 6Place half of the potato mixture in the prepared pan and gently smooth it to the edges.
    Sprinkle the grated Asiago over the potato mixture to within 1/4 inch of the outer edge. but not over.
    Top with the remaining potato mixture and carefully smooth it over with a wet spatula.
    Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup breadcrumbs and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  • 7Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until light golden brown on top.
    Remove from the oven and let rest for 20 min.
    Unmold onto a serving plate and cut into wedges like a cheesecake to serve.
  • 8I came back in and did an edit on this by adding a masher and hand mixer and I used ham instead, but this turned out wonderfully and was really pretty easy to make.
    It makes a lot and is smooth and cheesy.
