This Sunday the Sunday School classes at our Church are presenting Christmas Around The World to the congregation (it is the annual Christmas pageant).
Charlotte is giving a short presentation on Japan, China and Korea - each of the kids are giving short presentations about different parts of the world ..... they'll all be in costume, as well. ˚Ü˚ There will also be a potluck lunch afterwards - the kids are bringing foods from their chosen countries and members of the congregation have been invited to bring foods from their ethnic backgrounds. It's going to be a wonderful afternoon filled with fellowship and food. ˚Ü˚
Today, I decided to try out one of the recipes that we found for Charlotte to bring - it's called Instant Potato Pizza and the recipe is from Japan (recipe is from Extending the Table .... A World Community Cookbook and it's on page 186 & 187). This was a pretty tasty pizza - although it was a bit strange to have a crust made from potatoes, lol (both the kids thought that it was absolutely delicious). One thing we would definitely do next time is add some more salt (and maybe some pepper) to the potato mixture.
Instant Potato Pizza (Japan)
Serves 2 - 3
Mix in bowl:
3 medium potatoes, finely sliced or grated
2 Tbsp. flour (we used a GF flour mix)
1/4 tsp. salt (you may want to use more .... we found the crust to be kind of bland)
Stir. Heat in nonstick frypan:
1 Tbsp. oil
Add potato mixture. Bake both sides in skillet until light brown and crusty. Add to top of potato crust:
green pepper, sliced or chopped
onion, sliced or chopped
Cover with a little tomato sauce mixed with salt and pepper, or ketchup.
Cover and simmer 5 - 7 minutes.
