Turned Potatoes


Serves 4-6

This is a wasteful but professional-looking way to present saute potatoes.

  • 2 lb (900 g) potatoes

  • 4 oz (110 g) clarified butter or butter and oil

  1. Cut the potatoes in half and then quarters.

  2. Square off the rounded end and trim all curves to make an oblong.

  3. Trirn the length of the potato to make a hexagonal barrel.

  4. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain and proceed as for saute potatoes, browning evenly on all sides.

  5. If your potatoes end up looking more like large olives than hexagonal barrels, call them Chateau Potatoes/Pomrnes de Terre Chateau.

  6. These are the traditional accompaniment to a Chateaubriand steak.
