Friulian Frico with MONTASIO cheese PDO

Friuli Venezia Giulia

The recipe

Ingredients (for 4 people):

Montasio Mezzano cheese: 400 g
Potatoes boiled and peeled: 500 g
1 onion (about 150 g)
Extra-virgin olive oil: 30 g

Pour the oil into a non-stick frying pan, gently brown the onions, sliced thinly (if necessary, simmer them with the lid on and a few spoonfuls of hot water). After about 10 minutes, add the boiled potatoes pureed using a masher and mix with a wooden ladle. At this stage also add the grated Montasio, blending the mix at a low flame to melt it evenly. Add salt and pepper as needed, then blend to even out the mixture and begin to give it a regular shape, as if it were an omelette. Increase the flame and cook the frico to form a crust on the bottom. Cook it on both sides to a golden brown. Serve hot, and if the Montasio releases too much grease on the surface remove this before transferring the frico onto a serving dish.
