Frico with onion and potatoes


Slice the onion in thin layers and cut the potatoes into small pieces by holding them in cold water so they do not blacken. Thinly slice the Montasio. Heat up a large frying pan with the butter (in the past it was much more frequent use of lard finely crushed) and let it dry in the sliced ​​onion then add the potatoes into small pieces; cover and cook over low heat until the potatoes themselves will be cooked and tender.
Then mash them with a fork so that they form a whole with the onion, sprinkle lightly with Grappa, add a little salt and pepper.
Put the slices in the pan and cook Montasio preparation, always on low heat, for about twenty minutes, taking care of twisted and turned from time to time so that eventually the "Frico" has a "biela crustolaza" (a nice crispy crust and golden). Serve hot with possibly accompanying polenta.
