  • 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) of potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet pepper, diced
  • Parsley, chopped for garnish
  • 4 eggs
  • 200 ml (1 cup) of kefir or yogurt
  • Cheese (any variety you prefer), grated
  • Salt, pepper, chili pepper to taste
  • Oil for greasing the baking dish


  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 180°C (356°F). Grease a baking dish with a little oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes: Peel and thinly slice the potatoes. Place them in a large bowl of cold water to prevent browning while you prepare the other ingredients.
  3. Sauté the Vegetables: Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and diced sweet pepper. Sauté until softened and fragrant. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Mix Eggs and Kefir: In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, and then stir in the kefir or yogurt. Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and chili pepper according to your taste.
  5. Layer the Bake: Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a kitchen towel. Layer half of the potato slices in the bottom of the greased baking dish. Spread the sautéed vegetables over the potatoes, then add the remaining potato slices on top.
  6. Add Egg Mixture and Cheese: Pour the egg and kefir mixture evenly over the layered potatoes. Ensure the mixture seeps through the layers. Sprinkle generously with grated cheese.
  7. Bake: Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 45-60 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  8. Garnish and Serve: Once baked, let the dish cool slightly before sprinkling with chopped parsley for a fresh touch. Serve warm.
