Döppekuchen potato flan. An Eifel speciality.

Döppekuchen is a typical dish from the Eifel region, traditionally made with grated potato, bacon and onion. These ingredients are based on the recipe for kartoffelpuffer (potato fritters), though the people of the Eifel were the first in Germany to do away with the time-consuming process of frying the batter. Instead they pour the mixture into a cast-iron pot (a döppe in the local dialect) and bake it in the oven like a cake (kuchen).
