The Beatles’ Admiral Halsey

Admiral Halsey notified me

He had to have a berth or he couldn’t get to sea

I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie

(The butter wouldn’t melt so I put it in the pie)…

This is the English Butter Pie from the Beatles’ song Admiral Halsey. Farm families used to make it often. This recipe does not call for nuts, but 1/2 cup chopped hazel nuts would be very good in this savory dish. English walnuts are another alternative.

Ingredients

•4 pounds potatoes

•4 large sweet onions (Spanish or Vidalia), sliced medium

•1 clove garlic, minced

•1/4 Cup butter (melted), plus additional butter or oil to sauté Onions

•1 Tbsp salt

•1/2 tsp. pepper

•1 Cup milk

•1/3 Cup flour

•1 Cup heavy cream

•Pie crust of your choice

Method

•Peel the potatoes or leave skins on if you wish (sometimes I peel them but leave a bit of skin on here and there for texture).

•Slice potatoes very thin.

•Parboil potato slices in salted water 2 to 3 minutes & drain.

•Sauté onions and garlic together in butter or oil just until soft.

•Layer potatoes and onion mixture in a 3-quart baking dish, sprinkling with salt and pepper over each layer and top.

•Gradually stir milk, half the cream and the melted butter into flour to form a paste.

•Pour milk mixture over potatoes.

•Prepare pie crust and roll it to fit the top of baking dish. Put it on top and crimp edges.

•Cut X air vent in the center of top crust.

•Brush top with additional cream.

•Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and crust is golden brown.

•Remove from oven. Warm the rest of the cream, pour through the X, set aside 15 minutes and serve.
