Creating a savory potato and mushroom cake is a fantastic way to combine comforting flavors into a satisfying dish. Here’s a recipe for making a delicious savory potato and mushroom cake:


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces (225g) mushrooms, sliced (use a mix of varieties like cremini, button, or shiitake)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or use fresh thyme if available)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or any other cheese you prefer)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a round baking dish or a springform pan with olive oil or cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Peel the potatoes and thinly slice them into rounds. Place the potato slices in a bowl of cold water to prevent browning.
  3. Cook the Mushrooms:
    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown, about 5-6 minutes.
    • Stir in the minced garlic and dried thyme, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. Assemble the Cake:
    • Drain the potato slices and pat them dry with paper towels.
    • Arrange a layer of potato slices on the bottom of the greased baking dish, slightly overlapping them.
    • Spread half of the cooked mushroom mixture evenly over the potatoes.
    • Repeat with another layer of potato slices and the remaining mushroom mixture.
  5. Prepare the Egg Mixture:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, grated Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Pour Over the Potato and Mushroom Layers:
    • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the potato and mushroom layers in the baking dish. Use a fork or spoon to gently press down on the layers to ensure the egg mixture is distributed.
  7. Bake:
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the eggs are set.
  8. Serve:
    • Remove the potato and mushroom cake from the oven and let it cool slightly.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
  9. Enjoy Your Savory Potato and Mushroom Cake:
    • Slice the potato and mushroom cake into wedges and serve warm as a delicious main dish or side. Enjoy the savory flavors and comforting textures of this delightful dish!

This savory potato and mushroom cake is perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner. It’s versatile and can be customized with your favorite herbs and spices. Pair it with a crisp green salad or enjoy it on its own for a satisfying meal. Bon appétit!
