Grated Potato Casserole – Riivinkropsu

Last Updated on November 13, 2019 by Chef Mireille

Potato CasseroleThis recipe comes from Satakunta, part of the historic Western province. As I have done research on Finland for this week’s post and I have been treated to such gorgeous scenery from this country, Finland has definitely made it onto my bucket list. However, I am definitely going in summer. They are similar to Iceland in that most of the winter is spent in darkness. In the winter, depending where you are in the country, the sun only rises above the horizon from 2-6 hours. Although I am sure they are used to it, I think I would find it depressing to be in darkness in the middle of the day. Much of the country is also continuously covered in snow throughout the winter season. Unless I’m going skiing, I think I’ll plan a summer trip to Finland.

Until then, I’ll have to settle with exploring this cuisine. While this dish was good, it was a little bland for my palate. I think adding some cheese will definitely up the flavor profile, which is what I will do if I make it again.

Pair it with some spicy sausage and cucumbers for a complete meal. The spicy sausage added the extra oomph to the meal that the casserole needed.

    Great looking casserole and if you thought it was bland, I might find it very bland 😛 Love the last picture, plate of casserole with sausage and salad.

    Nice dish Mir. And I would love to visit Finland too and that too only after reading your post. Sounds like a nice place to visit in winter in spite of the less day light time 🙂
