Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Scrub the potatoes, place them on a baking sheet and bake until the thickest part is easily pierce with a knife, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the potatoes to cool completely. Break them up by hand into rough 1- or 2-inch pieces. (this step can be done a day in advance; refrigerate the potatoes until needed.)

Step 2

In a small bowl, whisk to combine the mustard and vinegar. While whisking, add the olive oil in a steady stream to form an emulsion.

Step 3

In a deep-fryer or pot over medium-high heat, heat about 4 inches of peanut oil or lard to 360°F. Fry the potatoes in batches until golden brown and crisp, using a slotted spoon or frying spider to turn them often, about 4 minutes. When the potatoes are done, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate.

Step 4

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, scallions and enough vinaigrette to lightly coat (about 2 tablespoon) and toss to combine. Pour onto a platter, sprinkle with flaky salt and serve.

Yummo, yummo! These are super! At first, wasn't sure I cared for the Dijon dressing over the potatoes, but after a couple of minutes the potatoes absorbed it and it turns out so Good! Along with the crisp, the tang, the scallions are a must, just simply delightful! Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag Game and For Your Consideration Tag Game.

Daily Inspiration

These potatoes are really flavorful and delicious. The only change I made was to pan saute (in oil) the potatoes vs. deep frying them.
