  • 500g potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 200g bacon, chopped
  • 600g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 5 chicken eggs
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 100g hard mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Dish:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with a little vegetable oil.
  2. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potato slices and cook for about 5 minutes, just until starting to soften. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a bowl.
    • In the same boiling water, add the broccoli florets and blanch for about 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cook the Bacon and Onion:
    • In a skillet, heat a little vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped bacon and cook until it starts to crisp. Add the chopped onion and cook together until the onion is translucent and the bacon is fully crispy.
  4. Layer the Ingredients:
    • In the prepared baking dish, layer half of the boiled potatoes. Top with half of the broccoli, half of the bacon and onion mixture, and sprinkle with half of the grated mozzarella. Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes, broccoli, bacon and onion, and cheese.
  5. Prepare the Egg Mixture:
    • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sour cream until well combined. Season with salt to taste. Pour this mixture evenly over the layers in the baking dish.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the egg mixture has set.
  7. Serve:
    • Allow the bake to cool for a few minutes before serving. This helps the layers set, making it easier to serve neatly.
