Hasselback Cut, Stuffed, Fried Russet Potato
Rev: 210724 1530


Hasselback is an old traditional preparation where the potato is partially cut thru, w/ slits ~ ¼” apart, coated w/ butter & seasonings that permeate into the slits (etc.); and then baked.
Think: Potato fan configuration.

For this “experiment”:
Cut the potato with ~ ¼” slits, using a ½” spacer to keep a solid bottom.
Add a dusting mixture (flour, Panko, black pepper) into each slit (to keep the slits slightly open.)
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1 t AP flour
  • 3 T Panko
Fry at 325°F.
Cool for later service.

Insert each slit w/ small slice of extra sharp cheddar cheese.
Microwave to reheat & melt the cheese.

Served:
  • w/ smoked / sous vide Coulotte roast beef slices.
  • Au jus
  • Corn steamed, w/ butter, salt & pepper

Absolutely correct. My BAD !
KHO ! ! !

Before I retired, I worked at chemical plants that sometimes produced "potassium hydroxide" which is used to make optical quality glass. The chemical symbols for that are K=potassium; O=oxygen; H=hydrogen = = KOH.

Power is out in my neighborhood here in Detroit going on 36 hours with another 36 hours projected before restoration. Took the opportunity to make breakfast on the grill. Ham, egg, cheese and onion scramble with tortillas. Using up what's in the fridge before it spoils.
