Frico is a traditional potato pie from Carnia within the region Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the north of Italy. It is an example of European frugality and can be served as a starter or main dish. It contains potatoes, olive oil, onions and cheese. The original recipe dates back to the 15th century and uses a creamy regional cheese, called Montasio but can be replaced with another type of Italian cheese. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare a Frico.
Frico is best served hot when the cheese is still melted. As a side, we recommend Flora Italian Tomatoes with Basil and a glass of Pinot Grigio.
