Preparing the recipe for potato gateau without eggs

  1. To begin, place the potatoes in a pot filled with cold water. Place on the heat and cook for 30 minutes, starting from the moment the water boils.
  2. Next, remove the peel . Place them in a potato masher, collecting the puree in a bowl.
  3. To this, add 1 tablespoon of oil, pouring it in slowly; then, add the grated cheese and mix.
  4. Season with a little salt and pepper and mix again.
  5. Then, cut the thick slice of ham into cubes ; add them to the mixture and distribute them equally.
  6. Do the same with the mozzarella and scamorza, which you must add in cubes after draining the first one well (you can also use special mozzarella for pizza, without whey).
  7. At this point, if the dough is too compact and difficult to work with, you can add a drop of milk, otherwise take a baking dish and spread a spoonful of oil on the bottom.
  8. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and pour the potato mixture , leveling the surface.
  9. Sprinkle more breadcrumbs, covering the entire surface.
  10. Pour another spoonful of oil, sprinkled all over the breadcrumbs.
