Melissa d’Arabian’s Favorite Holiday Recipe
“This potato torte has become a staple at our annual Mother-Daughter Holiday Tea. It is easy to make ahead (you can even freeze it whole, already baked), and it can be served warm or room temperature. I always make a few … at least one without the bacon — I like to have some hearty meatless dishes at my parties for any vegetarian guests. The homemade crust is so flaky and tasty, and the potato gratin inside is perfect winter party fare. (And, a whole torte costs just a few dollars to make!)”
