This is a Swedish casserole known as Jansson's Temptation. You might be put off by the inclusion of anchovies, but you will be really surprised at how well the saltiness of the fish works in this dish.
I live in Sweden and this recipie is exactly like the one I use to make Jansson's Delight,, it is wonderful! The only difference is that I add the anchovies (packed in water from a tin) in layers, rather than at the bottom. I prefer your method better than mine. - 11 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Truly Excellent!!! One of the best potato dishes we've ever eaten. I used red onion for added depth and since I made it for two I had to adjust the amounts a bit (different than if you use the provided scaling calculator). 2 medium potatoes sliced 1/4", 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream, 2 Oz Butter and 1/4 bread crumbs (I'll increase the butter/bread crumbs next time, they really added to the dish) and I'd also bake 5 minutes longer (50 Minutes). This is top notch. - 30 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My gosh these are GOOD! I'm not a big anchovy fan, but you don't really taste the anchovies. They do, however, add a fabulous flavor. I used "regular" anchovies, half and half instead of heavy cream, and increased the topping a bit. We just LOVED these! Just a delicious potato dish! - 07 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
