Anything in batter is highly unfashionable for home cooking because it immediately brings deep fried and unhealthy oil to mind. This potato batter recipe is more like toad in the hole, and a tasty batter cooked in the oven need not be that bad.
1-1/2 lbs. of potatoes
1 pint of milk
1/2 lb. of wheatmeal
2-1/2 oz. of butter
pepper and salt to taste.
Peel and wash the potatoes, and slice them 1/4 inch thick, then dry them on a cloth.
Chop fine the onions. Put the butter into the frying-pan, and let it get boiling hot, turn into it the potatoes and onions, and fry them together, stirring frequently until the vegetables begin to brown and get soft.
Make a batter of the milk, meal, and eggs, stir the fried potatoes and onions into it, and season with pepper and salt.
Grease a pie-dish, turn the mixture into it, and bake the savoury for 1-1/2 hours.
Serve with vegetables and tomato sauce. This is a very tasty dish.
