Cauliflower Cheese Pie With Grated Potato Crust

2 cups packed grated raw potatoes
12 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
14 cup grated onion
1 cup packed grated strong cheddar cheese
1 medium cauliflower, broken into small florets
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons butter
1 dash thyme
12 teaspoon basil
12 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
14 cup milk
black pepper


Set the freshly grated potato in a colander over a bowl. Salt it and leave for 10 minutes. Then, squeeze out the excess water. Beat in the egg, salt and grated onion. Pat into a well oiled 9 inch pie tin, building up the sides of the crust with lightly floured fingers. Bake at 400*F for 40 to 45 minutes, until browned. After the first 30 minutes, crush with some more oil to crispen it. Meanwhile saute the onions and garlic in the butter for 5 minutes. Add the herbs and cauliflower and cook, covered, 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and the pepper. Spread half the cheese into the baked crust. Top with the saute, then the rest of the cheese. Beat together the egg and milk and carefully pour over. Dust with paprika. Lower the oven temperature to 375*F and bake for 35 to 40 minutes longer, until custard is set and is pie is nicely browned.
