A childhood favorite, Layered Potatoes (or in Hungarian, Rakott Krumpli) is an incredibly delicious dish. I usually make it when the weather turns cooler. It is comfort food at it’s best, and for some unknown reason, it’s really good with a couple of slices of plain white bread. A crunchy French baguette is also delicious. Try it with a side dish of dill pickle slices.

Don't skimp on the butter and sour cream. Also, make sure that the potatoes are fully cooked and do not have a bone. This dish is actually better on the second day when the butter and sour cream have been absorbed by the potatoes.
