How to make an Italian potato casserole

« When I was just a little girl [cit.] » and my grandmother used to prepare the gattò of potatoes I thought that was actually cooking a cat of potatoes O.O. It took me some years to realize that what we call gattò in Italian it means cake in French: Gâteau. It is funny how commonly, during the childhood, you mix-up the meanings of the words. For very long, I thought my grandmother’s name was mammina (mummy), since my mom, my aunts and uncle were calling her so.

So let's go now to the interesting part :)

Something in the air is suggesting the song “Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera)” sung by Doris Day (Video on youtube) and soundtrack of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie - The Man Who Knew Too Much.


1.5 kg of potatoes

80 gr of butter

4 egg white

3 yolks

100 gr of salami

100 gr of parmesan

50 gr of pecorino romano

250 gr of provolone (can be replaced by the cheddar)
