Neshama: Sometimes in life as in cooking, you will find things you can not accomplish, for one reason or another. That does not mean that you can not have what you want, only that you must look at things in a different way in order to accomplish your desire.
1 Small saucepan
1 Small corning ware (or similar) dish
1 Pint of Coffee Rich Non-Dairy Creamer
3 Tbsp. Osem Onion Soup Mix
4 - 5 Large Potatoes, Peeled and sliced thin across the width (making "circles", not long ovals)
2 - 3 Tbsp. Margarine, softened
1.Preheat oven to 375°.
Pour Coffee Rich into the small saucepan and add onion mix.
Heat on medium until just boiling, then turn to low and simmer for approximately 2 min.
2.Spray corning ware dish with Pam.
Make a layer across the bottom using the potato slices.
Using a teaspoon, add 5 to 6 small dots (approximately 1/4 tsp.) of margarine, randomly.
Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
3.Continue layering potatoes, adding margarine, salt, and pepper in between each layer.
Do not add margarine, salt or pepper to the top layer, do not let it sit above the lip of your dish.
Pour the simmering non-dairy creamer on to the potatoes, coating them.
The liquid should be visible but below the top lay.
4.Bake, uncovered, at 375° for an hour, or until the top layer of potatoes starts to turn golden and crispy.
Serve hot, and enjoy!
This dish is a great Shabbos side dish - simply cover it with foil after it is done baking and keep it on your blech!
