TasteAtlas, a world atlas of food and drinks, and an encyclopedia of flavors released a list of best rated Croatian food from Primorje and Lika region.
Among them is “Ličke police” – a simple dish made with potatoes from Lika as the main ingredient.
In order to prepare the dish, the potatoes should first be washed and dried, then cut into halves with their skin intact, seasoned with salt, and baked in the oven.
When the top of the potatoes develops a nice golden-brown color, and the potatoes develop a tender texture, the dish is ready to be consumed, either on its own or as an accompaniment to meat or dairy products. Police are especially popular during winter, and the most popular variety of the dish utilizes thin pieces of bacon which are placed on top of the potatoes near the end of baking.
