I dug this recipe out of an old Nigel Slater book the other day. The book was called Real Food. They aren't so much recipes as they are delicious suggestions about what to do with things you find in your larder, fridge, garden, etc. That is the way I always cook, and those are the sorts of dishes I love to cook the most. They are so open to interpretation and you can so easily make them your own.
And this one is such a simple dish. It's basically just layered raw potato, fried onions and chicken stock. You don't even need to peel the potatoes. And you can adapt it up or down to serve as many or as few people as you like.
You just layer it all up in a baking dish and pop it into the oven. Well, you do fry the onions in some butter first. I let them get just a bit golden, because I love those scrumptious golden bits, don't you?
The potatoes get all soft and soak up the chicken stock and the onions almost turn buttery . . . . in short, fabulous. This dish is utterly fabulous. And if the potato is your favourite vegetable like it is mine, then you will be in nothing short of heavenly bliss.

Not only is this delicious, but it is gorgeous to look at. Bon Appetit!
