COUNTRY-STYLE HERBED POTATO PIE Makes 6 to 8 servings Use Idaho Russets in this pie for the best results. Note that the first baking is done without the egg and cream custard, which is added through a hole in the top crust after the potatoes are tender. Sliced tomatoes with a basil vinaigrette are the perfect accompaniment. 1 2 2 2 2 2
