"More likely there's a very shell-shocked cat wandering around somewhere, covered in potato peelings"(Goblet of Fire 160).
I haven't read the book The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (though I have heard it's excellent), but since learning about it, I have wanted to make a potato peel pie. I didn't know people made pies out of potato peels until hearing about Mary Ann Shaffer's novel, and now I get to make one! I'm using a recipe I found at Best Potato Recipes.
You Will Need:
2 cups raw, grated potato peels (with a little of the white to keep the crust tender)
1/3 cup onion, grated
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbs flour
3. Bake the crust at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
4. While the crust is cooking, make your mashed potatoes.
6. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees, and cook the pie for 10-15 more minutes, or until the peaks are starting to brown.
This "pie" is quite dry, so I definitely recommend adding some gravy when you serve it! I like the idea of using potato peels to create a crust-- it might be a good choice for some kind of pot pie! Enjoy!
