Hash Brown Bacon Pie is exactly what it sounds: heavenly tasting grated potatoes, combined and baked with bacon bits.
Is there anything more comforting than a meal waiting for you at the end of a long day?
Hash Brown Bacon Pie
- 4 potatoes medium
- 2 yellow onions small
- 2 eggs
- 4-5 pieces of bacon minced, or dried beef
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 6 tablespoons white flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional Buttermilk, yogurt or milk with 1 minced garlic clove
- Heat oven to 390F. Oil a baking pan (the one used here was 12 inches in diameter), and place in the oven to warm up. (This will prevent the stickiness. If it starts to smoke up while you're preparing the ingredients, take the pan out, and add a little more oil.)
- Peel and grate the potatoes and onions and place into a bigger bowl. Mince bacon and add to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Combine and mix well. Carefully transfer the mass into the hot and oiled baking pan, and even it out so it's the same thickness everywhere.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 390F turning the pan around about halfway. Then lower the temperature to 360F and bake for another 10 minutes. (Total baking time is 30 min.)
- Take out, and spray with water lightly. Leave to cool a little bit, then break into parts with your hands. If you like, soak in milk, buttermilk or yogurt, and add minced garlic.

You make it sound so easy! I love the photo layout!
I need to make this tonight sans the bacon but I still think hubby would like it -
Aida - is Sarma always made with sour cabbage? I bought 3 cabbages at the store yesterday thinking my father in law could make them into sour 🥬… well I guess that is only done during the fall and winter - I felt like an idiot. So now now have a lot of cabbage - I might make a cabbage salad - I saw the recipe - one think I like about the Balkan cuisine is that it can be done affordably - I mean not all recipes of course but many are for the budget 😂
I'm not crazy about stuffed cabbage with fresh leaves, the taste is much better with sour. However, here's a link to my friend Jas' website. Her recipes are always spot on and delicious! She explains how you can use fresh leaves. (She has some amazing recipes from Bosnia too, you should check her out.)
Oh, and here's a non bacon version of this: https://balkanlunchbox.com/hashbrown-potato-pie-kljukusa/
Glad the photos are helpful!

I think you are right about it tasting better with sour Cabbage - now I know why it’s such a delicacy - as is Pita - because a lot of time and effort go into the food. I just checked out Ja’s website - thank you! But I felt disloyal in someway 😂 I’m like this is good but I like Balkan Lunchbox…
Ps - im making grah right now but with ground beef because I can never get to the European store - I have to go in with a big old wagon and my 2 small children - but I think it will be good… oko bog da 😊
Jas is fantastic, and we recommend her highly! It's where we go to when we're out of ideas for cooking 🙂
