The recipe for savory cheese and potato pie

Here is the quick and easy recipe for preparing the savory cheese and potato pie.


  • 1 roll of puff pastry
  • 400 g of potatoes
  • 150 g of soft cheese (such as buffalo mozzarella or formaggella)
  • 100 g cream cheese (such as Philadelphia or ricotta)
  • 80 g of mixed stringy cheeses (try the Cerreto)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 ml of milk
  • 1 white onion
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste
  • Fresh rosemary or fresh sage (optional)


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Roll out the puff pastry into a cake pan, leaving a little border.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin slices. Peel and finely chop the onion.

In a pan, pour a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and fry the onion until translucent. Add the potato slices to the pan with the onion and cook for a few minutes, until the potatoes are tender.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with the cream cheese and milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the egg and cheese mixture onto the perforated puff pastry, distributing it evenly. Add potatoes and cheeses to taste on the puff pastry.

If you want a touch of scent, add a few sprigs of rosemary or sage on top of the cake. Fold the edges of the puff pastry inwards, creating a hem.

Bake the savory cheese and potato pie for about 20-25 minutes or until the surface becomes golden and crunchy.

Remove the savory pie from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.

You can enjoy the savory cheese and potato pie both hot and cold. If you serve it cold, let it rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour before cutting it into slices.
