Salty cake
by: Anonymous

I just went to Germany and they made a salty kuchen and it was served like pizza..make a crust not sure how but I am using a traderjoes pizza crust. Then make the topping : 2eggs 1lb potaoes cooked and shredded. 1/2 c milk, 1 1/2 cup fresh cheese curd, 1onion that had been sautéed, parsley,salt and pepper, topped with small pieces of bacon and caraway seed. Then bake 30 min @ 480 degrees. She said she added extra salt because it is a "salty cake" it was great..I am making it today for the first time. We don't have fresh cheese here so going to look for a substitute , like ricotta ?
