While researching, I found this recipe for Welsh Onion Cake over at Just a Pinch. We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and I am working with limited room and capabilities. This recipe was simple enough that it was doable working in my dining room and using my smart oven for the potatoes as a side dish for the steaks that I was grilling for dinner.
I adapted the recipe to make two individual casseroles instead of making a large casserole. The recipe calls for caerphilly cheese but states you can substitute cheddar. I had cheddar on hand so that is what I used.
This is a wonderful, simple recipe containing only 4 ingredients and seasoned with just salt and pepper. This is a good thing especially when all your spices are buried underneath everything else that was removed from the kitchen.
This week's menu still reflects the fact that I have no kitchen. I am very grateful for the amazing weather we have been having that allows a lot of outdoor cooking.
