Smoked Hungarian sausage is the star in this one-pot comfort food dish of layered potatoes and hard-cooked eggs smothered in sour cream and bread crumbs, known as rakott burgonya (RRAH-koht BOORR-gohn-yoh). It can be served as a luncheon dish with a green salad, as a main course or as a side dish.


  • 4 ounces/1 stick butter (plus additional butter to grease casserole dish)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (fine, plus additional for dusting casserole dish)
  • 8 medium potatoes (red, boiled al dente, peeled and thinly sliced)
  • 8 eggs (hard-cooked, peeled, and sliced)
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound Hungarian sausage (smoked mild, medium or hot, cut 1/4-inch thick)
  • 1 cup sour cream

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter bottom and sides of a large casserole dish with a lid. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

  3. Arrange 1/3 of potatoes in bottom of casserole dish and dot with 1/4 of butter. Cover with 1/3 of eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with 1/3 of sausage followed by 1/3 of sour cream.
