Fry onions and garlic in olive oil until transparent.

Boil potatoes and bacalhau together for a few minutes until just tender.

Flake the bacalhau and cut the potatoes into medium thick slices.

In a greased Pyrex, layer onions, potatoes, parsley and bacalhau and continue to do so ending with the potato.

Lightly beat the eggs into the cream.

Pour the cream mixture over the top of the filling then sprinkle breadcrumbs all over the top. Dot with butter.
