Accidental Side Dish Discovery

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Other night I made some baked potatoes with my grilled steak.
I posted I coat them w EV Olive Oil, and spice w salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Pierce and bake for 45 - 1 hour at 375 depending on size.

Had one leftover potato and kept it in the fridge.

Wifey took it out, cut it into "rounds" topped w a dollop of sour cream and garnished w some fresh snipped chives. (tater eaten cold)

Simple, easy and cheap.

I WILL MAKE THIS OFTEN and what a GREAT picnic or TAILGATE item.
Great finger food that is just delicious.

My problem is getting my food to stay long enough to be called "left overs"!

Thats actually pretty close to a dish a chef friend of mine used to make all the time. Difference being, she would thinly slice the potato, season it with salt, pepper and garlic salt and then toss it on the grill. After a crisping she would mix it with fresh cut chives, mayo and sour cream. They are awesome and ive made them numerous times.

TRY rubbing your potatoes with evoo and then dust with some garlic salt or garlic powder then foil and bake. Put a couple small holes in the foil and you will get a little more smoky flavor.

This recipe is made with boiled potatoes obviously, they use mealy sweet(not yammy sweet like yukon sweet) potatoes. Infact there very mealy, but it would also be good with left over room temp smoked or grilled pot.

8 potatoes
1 cup grated Queso casero, queso fresco, feta or muenster-style cheese
1 cup Evaporated milk
2-3 tbs AjÃ* amarillo paste, or minced jalapeño
½ tsp Turmeric
4-8 Saltines or soda crackerscrumbled
3-4 Tbsp Oil
Salt & pepperto taste

Lettuce leaves about 12 each
Eggs hard boiled, quartered 4 each
Tomatoes cut into thin wedges 2 each
Black olives pitted 8-10 each (Peruvian or kalamata)

Basic Steps
Cover the whole potatoes with salted water and boil until cooked through.
Remove from heat, drain and cool. Peel potatoes when cool and cut in half
length-wise or in rounds.
Place the cheese, evaporated milk, peppers and turmeric in a blender or food
processor and puree till smooth. With the motor running, add the crackers one
at a time to thicken the sauce. Again with the motor running, drizzle in the
oil. Add more crackers if the sauce is too thin and milk or water if it's too
thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Line a serving platter with the lettuce leaves. Place potatoes on top of the
lettuce leaves. Spoon chile-cheese sauce over the potatoes. Garnish serving
plate with egg quarters and tomato wedges. Sprinkle olives over potatoes and

The dish is great, its peruvian, the chili paste in the recipe is made from a chili indiginous to the andes, hard to get. I would really use a blend of yellow bell and scotch bonnet if I couldnt get the yellow peruvians.
