Potatoe bake (Babka ziemniaczana)

Category

Potato bake is a very simple dish of Belarusian origin. In Poland it is usually served in eastern regions such as Podlasie. We had the opportunity to taste this specialty during our trip to Bialowieza. It can be served with sour cream or any kind of sauce you like. It tastes good both hot and cold, but also fried the next day in a frying pan.
