1 kg potatoes
3 garlic gloves
200 g herring
1 teaspoon black pepper (ground)
½ teaspoon salt
4 dl cream
½ dl brine of the herring
Peel and cut the potatoes into thin slices (like French fries). Slice the onion, garlic and herring into thin slices. In a bowl, mix everything together, and add spices. Pour the mixture in a greased ovenproof pan.
Mix together cream and brine, and pour on the top of the potato and herring mixture.
Bake at 200°C for at least an hour, or until crisp and brown on top. For extra tasty result, after an hour cover with foil, lower the heat to 150 °C and bake for another 30 minutes.
