Potato Dominoes ala Jaden


Being a huge fan of different foods and global flavors, it's funny for me to say that my family does not feel quite the same about food. Basically food is food to them. Of course, it killsme when they say that, but we move on. When I cook dinner, I make things that are pretty familiar and quite boring really. Take my brother for example.He absolutely hates the sweet savory mix. No peanut dressings, sweet bbq sauces, and no pork tenderloin with cherry-apricot chutney.B-O-R-I-N-G. He likes pizza, potatoes, pizza, calzones,pizza and most fruits. (Hey at least he likes fruit)


When I saw well-known blogger Jaden Hair of Steamykitchen make Potato Dominoes, I knew I had to make them. They sounded amazing and provided a chance to break away from the monotony that is spaghetti and chicken stir fry. How did they turn out? They were a big hit. My brother is a big fan of these style of potatoes now. Paired with a braised beef stew, they made the perfect dinner.



Recipe from Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way by Francis Mallmann

4 Idaho (baking) potatoes
4 tablespoons chilled clarified butter( or regular butter)
Kosher or Sea Salt

Preheat your oven to 400F.

Cut off the ends of a potato and trim to make 4 equal sides to form a brick. With a mandoline, Slice the potatoes to 1/8 inch thick. Taking a stack of potatoes like you would a stack of cards, lay it on its side in a medium baking dish. Use the reserved potato ends to keep the stack up.As you lay them in, angle the slices to look like dominoes that have fallen over. Dot the sides and top with the clarified butter and season with salt. Continue stacking all the potatoes, but be sure to keep them at least 2 inches apart. When all the potaoes are lined up and seasoned, take out the reserved potato ends.

Bake for 40 minutes,or until the potatoes are browned on the edges and is tender in the middle when poked with a skewer. Serve immediately.

I too live in a potato dominated world and the more 'unique' I can make them the better - this is right up my alley...I wish I had thought of it - wait...I can pretend that I did!

Yes, I like potatoes prepared in that fashion, and my family has been making them like that for well over two generations.

Of course, we call them by a different name down in Texas --- LOL!
