1/24/10 - What's for Dinner

Posted 01-24-2010 at 06:43 PM by jbarber8

I made this casserole for dinner. Can you think of anything better on a Sunday night?


It was delicious! We weren't sure whether we would like turnips, and we did. (The kids would not eat it.) It was also fairly quick to prepare. I used brie in place of the Gruyère, and regular plain yogurt in place of the Greek yogurt.

The recipe is from Cooking Light.

Rösti Casserole with Baked Eggs

Ingredients
1 1/4 cups fat-free Greek-style yogurt
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups grated peeled turnip (about 8 ounces, 2 small)
1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded Gruyère cheese
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg
1 (30-ounce) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed (such as Ore-Ida)
Cooking spray
8 large eggs
Chopped fresh chives (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Combine yogurt and flour in a large bowl, stirring well. Add turnip, Gruyère cheese, butter, chives, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, black pepper, nutmeg, and potatoes to yogurt mixture. Spread potato mixture evenly into a 13 x 9–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven. With the back of a spoon, make 8 indentations in top of potato mixture. Crack 1 egg into each of 8 indentations. Return dish to oven. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until egg whites are firm and yolks barely move when pan is touched. Cut into 8 pieces. Garnish with additional chives and black pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
