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.
