Fully loaded potato skins! Try twice baked, but deep fry the skins first!

Another way we like them is to peel, cut in large chunks, steam until just starting to get tender. Dump them on paper towels to dry off and cool for a while. Then, S&P and lots of olive oil. I toss with my hands (thus the cooling off mentioned earlier) and pop in the oven at 375 on a large cookie sheet, single layer, until a beautiful golden crispy crust forms and potatoes are soft and fluffy inside. Stir occasionally. It will be at least half an hour, more depending on how large you cut and how much water is in the potato that has to come out (thus steam instead of boil, which adds even more water). You need to use LOTS of olive oil because you basically are oven frying them.

I had these in Italy at a dinner in the Villa Medici in Florence in 2000. Besides the dinner performance and the company, these potatoes are the thing I remember about the meal.

I also love to make these Greek-style lemon-garlic potatoes from Cooks Illustrated: What A Dish!: Greek-Style Garlic-Lemon Potatoes

I was looking for something I could do with 2 leftover baked potatoes. Would these twice-baked potatoes work with baked potatoes that have been in the refrigerator for 2 days?

Yes, definitely!

I cut the up for home fries the next morning with a couple of eggs and some bacon or breakfast sausages.

That's a good idea too, Addie. My husband loved steak fries. One time at a restaurant they only had baked potatoes, but they cut them in long strips and deep fried them for him. He loved them!

What temp do you bake them at, after the boiling step?

potato, recipe

Potato Recipes The rain kind of changed our plans so I made my coffee, and vegetated in bed watching TV and looking up some recipes on the laptop. Brunch was in my immediate future. I had one sm.-med. red potato left. First I was thinking home fries (lots of variations for those), then decided on a potato pancake. I got my guidance from Giada De Laurentiis on the Food Network site. I say "guidance" because I'm making it for one, so I've gotten used to winging it with recipes. I shredded the potato and squeezed out the moisture using a cheesecloth and put that in a small bowl. In a small fry pan I sautéed a small amount of chopped onion in a little olive oil and added 1 clove of crushed garlic to that. I added that to the potato along with a handful of grated parmesan cheese, salt & pepper, and chopped fresh basil. And, I had a small amount of grated cheddar and crumbled bacon I had used for a cauliflower crust grilled cheese, so I mixed that in too. No egg or flour in this recipe. I added a little more olive oil to the pan and then added and pressed down the potato mixture in the heated pan. After peeking at the bottom for doneness, I gently flipped it over. To my amazement, it flipped over perfectly. I slid it onto the plate when done and put it back in the low oven with my turkey bacon to keep warm while I fried an egg. Then plopped that egg right on top! Not only pretty... but delicious!

I cut the potatoes up super little... added seasonings and grated onion... didn't have to par cook the potatoes. 4 stars 1 reviews
