Another new recipe for me. I don't know how German this actually is, but it's tasty. (Modification: I changed the ground beef for ground turkey--and 1 lb. actually seemed too much. Also, I'm going to cut down the salt somewhat next time I make it, as it seemed too salty to me.)
1 lb. ground turkey (or less)
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, diced
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 Tb. butter
6 medium potatoes (about 2 1/4 lbs.), peeled and finely shredded
1/2 tsp. salt (or less)
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. milk
2 c. (8 oz.) shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
In skillet over medium heat brown ground turkey, onion, and green pepper.
Add salt and pepper. Remove meat mixture from heat.
Melt butter in 9x12 casserole dish in oven.
Spread shredded potatoes over butter and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt.
Add meat mixture over the top.
Combine eggs and milk, pour over all.
Cook, covered, at 450 degrees, until potatoes are tender, about 30 min.
Top with cheese. Cover and heat until cheese melts, about 5 min.
