Creative Fried Potato Recipes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Thinking of  doing something more on the creative side other than house cut frites for a hangar steak. I want something crisp and fried.

 

Had a chef deep fry potato skin scraps and tossed with sea-salt and drizzled creme fraiche for staff meal, delicious. Thinking of something along this line. Maybe smashed red bliss fried and tossed with chives and drizzled with creme fraiche? Fried cubes topped with a gruyere mornay like a patatas bravas? Dish we be a grilled, sliced hangar with the potato component and some greens in a light vinaigrette, maybe red watercress or mache.

 

Any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

How about a mix of different starches and other things cut in roughly the same shape and fried like a chip, such as jams, sweet potato, potato, plantains and tempura basil leaves. Several different flavors represented in one side order rainbow chips, you could even toss in those potato skins  for good measure.

I've done fingerlings in the past. Boil until tender, smash to flatten, fry, serve over a smear of roasted garlic, garnish with chive curls.

Thanks for the ideas guys!

 

I'm thinking about this being a fall menu idea so the potatoes with fried turnips (ever done?) or parsnips might be a good idea. I was also thinking fingerlings (twice fried or something) but don't those raise in price during the fall/winter months?

How about a potato pancake or roesti with parsnip?It's crisp and it's fried.
