    bengi's Note:

    I found this in Cook's Country, the new magazine by the Cook's Illustrated people. I haven't tried it yet but plan on making it for the Thanksgiving dinner at work. I'm going to go ahead and post it for those looking for Holiday recipes. It's basically a savory cake made with potatoes and eggs, with a layer of cheese and salami in the middle, and made in a springform pan like a cheesecake

      I have made this on several occasions and all I can say is that it is awesome! I will be making this for Thanksgiving as well as traditional mashed potatoes. I have to tell you, the potato cake will go first before the regular mashed! This dish will be the star of your feast!
