Who needs chocolate when you can have the divine taste of this superb looking and tasting abundance in flavor comfort food?  Excellent healthy protein and carbs combined with veggies and dairy, all in one magnificent dish.  I am ready to hit the high C after this meal and so will you :)

  1. 2 Lbs of ground pork
  2. 1 medium onion - chopped
  3. 1 shallot (it can be substituted with a red onion) - chopped
  4. 1 small red bell pepper –chopped
  5. ½ of Jalapeno pepper if you like it spicy -chopped
  6.  ½ green pepper – chopped
  7. 6-7 cloves of garlic
  8. olive oil, 3 tablespoons
  9. 6 large Idaho potatoes or similar
  10. 1 cup of milk
  11. ¾ cup of sour cream
  12. 2 eggs
  13. 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
  14. 4 slices of smoked Mozzarella and Provolone cheese , each- total 8 slices ( you can use only Mozzarella or Provolone, 8 slices)
  15. salt, pepper, paprika – Vegeta powder or Garlic Salt works great also

Boil potatoes (skin on) in salty water, drain when done and let it cool before you clean them.
Finely chop onions, garlic, red and green peppers and place them in a large pot with the olive oil. Fry them until golden then add the ground pork with seasonings:  Vegeta, Garlic salt, black pepper and a teaspoon of paprika.  Stir it often and let it cook until the meat is tender, covered with steam hole open on the lid.
Take a deep casserole dish, pour a little olive oil on the bottom or coat it with some butter and start slicing up the potatoes on the bottom, 2 potatoes in round cuts.  Add half of your meat mixture on top and spread it evenly.  Now layer another 2 potatoes sliced round and add the rest of the meat mixture on top.  Now layer the meat mixture with the last 2 potatoes and cover the whole thing with the 8 thin slices of cheeses.

In a Magic Bullet or mixer add the 2 eggs, sour cream, milk, salt and chopped parsley, give it a few pushes and pour the milky mixture over the dish slowly.
In the summer time you can put the dish in the microwave half covered and heat it up with two 5 minute cycles until the cheese completely melted.
In the winter time you can heat up the oven to 375 F, and bake the dish for 25-30 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.
Sprinkle it with some chopped scallion greens and paprika for effect and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

EGESZSEGEDRE!                                                                       BON APPETITE!
