Sliced Oven Fried Potatoes with Goat Cheese

30 Aug

OMG this recipe is a must make.

It is a Bobby Flay recipe that I changed just a little but his salad dressing is a do not touch delicious.

6 large red and white potatoes

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons oil

Dressing

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

2 cloves garlic

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/2 cup basil leaves

1 1/2 cup oil

Fresh ground pepper

Put all the dressing ingredients into a blender and swirl till smooth.

Set aside.

12 ounces goat cheese

6 tablespoons chopped chives

Heat your oven to 450 degrees

Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices

Lightly oil a non stick foil lined baking pan

Arrange the potatoes on the pan but do not overlap

Sprinkle with Kosher salt

Bake till the tops start to brown then turn over to brown the other side.

Place the potatoes on a paper towel to drain any oil.

Take one tablespoon of goat cheese and spread it on each potato.

Put the potatoes back in the oven and melt the cheese just a little.

Take out and drizzle with the dressing and the chives.

I served these on a bed of greens.

I also didn’t have any chives so I diced up a red onion.

Bobby Flay made beautiful potato stacks but these are open face so I can eat more.

Thank you Bobby Flay.

Salt and Vinegar Baked Potatoes

24 Feb

unnamed

I saw these on TV and had to make them.

12 small red or small white potatoes

3 tablespoons salt plus more for sprinkling

Black pepper

3 to 4 tablespoons oil

One tablespoon apple cider or malt vinegar per potato.

Wash all the potatoes.

Place them in a pot with water and 3 tablespoons salt.

Boil the potatoes till they are fork tender.

Drain and dry the potatoes.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees

Put the canola oil in the bottom of a cookie sheet.

Place the potatoes on the pan and coat them with the oil.

With the bottom of a glass, press down on the potatoes till they are about 1/2 inch thick.

They aren’t very pretty but cute.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for ten to fifteen minutes.

Take out of the oven and turn the potatoes over.

Pour the vinegar over each potato

Sprinkle with a little more salt

Bake in the oven until the potatoes are crisp.

Tastes just like salt and vinegar potatoes chips

Serve with ketchup, hot sauce or even sour cream.

The vinegar really adds a great taste to the potato.

I served these as a side dish.

BUT

Next time I make them I would add some fresh parsley, minced garlic, sliced scallions, a little more vinegar . Maybe a squeeze of lemon or some lemon zest would be nice.

This would be a delicious warm potato salad.

Great for the summer because there isn’t any mayonnaise.
