Petatou Poitevin recipe
- In a saucepan of salted water (start cold), cook the potatoes in their field dress. Once cooked, peel and puree them by passing them through a sieve. The mash should be quite compact.

Preheat the oven to 200/210 ° C (th. 6/7).
- Gather the mash, cheese, whole eggs, butter and milk in a bowl. Season to taste. Mix well with a whisk.
- Butter a tart mold and line it lightly with flour. Roll out the dough inside, making sure to leave a slightly high edge to allow the dough to rise.
- Pour the mixture over the dough, level with a spatula, then bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and brown the surface with beaten egg yolk, using a brush.
- Bake again for about 30 to 45 minutes.
