If you like potatoes, you'll love this Potato Cheese Bake. It is so easy to make and popular that it is bound to become a regular dish in your home. This recipe is especially fitting for Shavuot and the Nine Days, when dairy meals are traditionally served.


  • 8 large potatoes, peeled
  • 2 cups grated hard cheese (Cheddar or similar)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


1. Fill a large pot with water. Add potatoes. Cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook potatoes until soft, but not mushy (approximately 50 minutes). Drain.
2. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C).
3. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Mash slightly so the potatoes are chunky and the pie will be airy. If you mash the potatoes too much, then the pie will be too dense.
4. Mix in cheese.
5. Add eggs and spices.
6. Pour into a greased baking pan.
7. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
