Vegetarian Râpée

Recipe Image
side note from my vegetarian cousin- "I make fake bacon with tofu, and I just make the rapee the regular way and substitute the fake bacon for the ham we usually put in it. It is good:) Never tried the bread crumbs though, not sure why the bread crumbs."

Preparation time:
Cooking time: 2 1/2 hours

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 12

Dietary guidance: v 


16 cups of freshly grated potatoes, (no squeezing out the water)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
5 eggs (* might not be used for some vegetarians)
2- 1/2 cups of bread crumbs (whiz some bread slices in your food processor and measure out 2-1/2 cup-don't use dry bread crumbs from a box)
1 1/2 Tbsp salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp pepper


Mix everything together in a big bowl, grease pans well with margarine or butter or vegetable oil, (I use TWO 12x6x2 stainless steel pans... ) Pour mixture and cook at 375 for approximately 2 hours to 2 1/2 hours. Would make 12 very big and thick pieces...

*if you don't use the eggs, I can't guarantee the results.... It might work well too, I never tried it without:)
Optional-You can also put some more oil on top halfway through baking if you want...but I didn't....
Be sure to generously grease your pans before pouring in the mixture...I greased mine with butter:)
