Reserve 2 tablespoons of the butter and dot the onions/potatoes in pan with tiny pieces of the remaining butter.

Repeat these layers and finish with a layer of potatoes.

Step 6

Melt remaining butter and brush over the top.

Cover with foil and bake for 1-1 1/2 hours, until tender and golden. Let stand for 10-15 minutes, covered.

An excellent potato dish that everyone enjoyed. I used Yukon Gold potatoes grown in my back yard garden. So easy to make and made for great presentation. Yes it tastes as good as it looks. Will definitely make this again.

These were really good. I thought that I might miss some cream or cheese in these, but didn't at all. I made 2 individual servings in small casserole dishes. Thanks for sharing, Mike and congrats on your football win.

I did not have a round 8" tin for this, so I used a loaf pan. I did add some snipped fresh chives to the layers also, and we really did enjoy this onion cake. I think I should have made the potatoes a little thinner and next time I will use a mandolin, I also cut back on the butter just a little. This was a wonderful potato side to our main dish, which I will be making for us all to enjoy again soon.
