Cooking mushrooms casserole:
Step 1: prepare the mushrooms.
First of all, we wash the honey mushrooms well under running water and put them in a small bowl. If necessary, spread the mushrooms on a cutting board and cut off the coarsened places on the cap and leg with a knife. Now put them in a medium saucepan and pour ordinary water into it so that it completely covers the mushrooms. We put the container on medium heat and wait for the water to begin to boil. Foam should appear on its surface. Immediately after that, holding the pan with kitchen tacks, pour the liquid with honey mushrooms through a colander into the sink, and thoroughly rinse the mushrooms under running cold water.
Once again, put them in the same pan, fill it with ordinary cold water and put on medium heat. After boiling the liquid, cook mushrooms for 50 minutes under the lid on fire a little less than average. After the allotted time, turn off the burner, and the mushrooms, using a tablespoon, are transferred to a colander. We set aside so that excess liquid comes from them.
Pour a small amount of vegetable oil into the pan and put on medium heat. When the oil warms up well, make a small fire and spread the mushrooms. From time to time, stirring with a wooden spatula, fry mushrooms until tender golden crust and until the mushroom liquid is completely evaporated. Attention: if desired, the dish can be salt.
Step 2: prepare the potatoes.
Using a knife, peel the potatoes and rinse thoroughly under running water. We spread the vegetable on a cutting board and cut into medium pieces. Now we transfer them to a free pan, fill everything with ordinary cold water so that it completely covers the potatoes 2-3 centimeters and put the container on medium heat. When the water begins to boil, foam will appear on its surface, so we must remove it with a slotted spoon. Make the fire less than average and cook the potatoes for 30-40 minutes under the cover.
After the allotted time has passed, turn off the burner, open the lid a bit and, holding it and the pan with kitchen tacks, drain the remaining liquid. In boiled potatoes, add butter and cold milk. Using the pusher, carefully grind everything until a homogeneous mass is formed. Attention: the mixture should be liquid in consistency. If desired, the dish can be salted, but at the same time, not forgetting the salted mushrooms.
Step 3: prepare the cheese.
We grate hard cheese on a fine grater on a cutting board. After, transfer it to a free saucer. Attention: any kind of hard cheese can be used for casserole. It can be Russian, and Maasdam, and Kostroma. The main thing is that you like it.
Step 4: prepare potato dough.
Add eggs, grated cheese, soda and flour to the liquid potato mass. Using a crush or a regular tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until smooth. In terms of density, it should turn out like a pancake.
Step 5: prepare a casserole of honey mushrooms.
Lubricate the baking dish on all sides with a small amount of vegetable oil. Then sprinkle with breadcrumbs so that the casserole does not stick during baking to the walls of the container. At the bottom of the form with a tablespoon, spread evenly half the potato dough. After that, evenly spread the roasted mushrooms. And now, on top of the mushrooms, spread the remaining potato dough and use a tablespoon to level the surface of the dish.
We put the baking dish in a preheated oven to a temperature 180 ° C and bake until a brown crust appears on the baking surface. Immediately after that, turn off the oven, and take out the dish with kitchen tacks and set aside to cool slightly.
Step 6: serve the mushrooms casserole.
As soon as the cep from the honey mushrooms cools down a little, we transfer it to the serving dish and we hasten to serve it to the dining table. The pastries are very tasty, aromatic and quite satisfying, so it can be served as a main dish along with sour cream, mayonnaise and other sauces to your taste.
- For a golden crust, you can use beaten egg yolk. To do this, after we lay out the last potato layer, it must be greased with yolk using a pastry brush.
- For spicy pungency, you can add black ground pepper to the dish.
- Such a dish can be prepared not only from fresh mushrooms, but also from frozen ones. True, mushrooms will have to be fully thawed before cooking.
- Optionally, add onion to the mushroom filling. To do this, it is necessary to grind and fry along with honey mushrooms.
