1. Calotted Cream Mash
Ice cream and frozen potatoes? It may sound illegal but listen, in 2022 we prefer to be self-contained and that means being diverse with our food groups.
- Potatoes you peel & mince, garlic, then put in a pan of salted water, steamed with water.
- Bring to a boil and then drain.
- Melt butter in a saucepan, pour into a bowl and set aside.
- Return the potatoes to the pan and mash.
- Add butter and mix.
- Pour in your curd (yes, we’ll do the whole bath, nothing less) and combine.
- Add a little milk to thin it, season with salt and pepper to taste, then sweat profusely and devour it like there’s no tomorrow.
2. Four Ingredients Boursin Potato Gratin
For the uninitiated, Boursin is the ultimate Gournay cream cheese flavored with garlic and herbs. Pairing perfectly with wine, bread, crackers, pasta and salmon, it can transform any dish but it truly becomes its own dish when paired with potatoes. This Boursin gratin show-stopper from Gayle Chapman is a twist on classic gratin or dauphinoise, great to enjoy with your Sunday roast or summer barbecue. Side note: this is your cue to buy a mandoline.
1 HOUR 15 MINUTES
- Preheat oven to 180°C fan. In saucepan, heat milk and Boursin cheese until melted and season with plenty of salt and pepper.
- Whisk until they are completely combined.
- Butter an 8 x 10 plate and then sprinkle half of the butter on the bottom of the plate.
- Place the potatoes around the edge of the plate, from the inside to the center (in stacks about an inch high instead of one by one).
- Slowly pour in the Boursin milk so that it is evenly distributed (it should be quite full).
- Pull the side potatoes away from the edge and poke a bit with a spatula in any areas where they seem to need a little more looseness.
- Dab the butter on top, then place the plate on a foil-lined baking tray in the center of the oven for an hour or until crisp on top and cut through easily with a knife.
- If it looks like it’s starting to burn on top, cover with foil. Once out of the oven, let the cake cool for 5-10 minutes and enjoy.
