Mike refers to this as his version of disco fries! I love it! It was very unami friendly and delicious. Good day, Pellegrin is back supporting maintenance and Herbie will start supporting the Marine Corps next Monday. We took Harry the dog to the beach last Monday to celebrate his 11th? birthday and had one of our best days.
Fun easy recipe, one of Mike's easiest and best. I was able to find ricotta salata at Trader Joe's, otherwise this might have been hard. I boiled potatoes for 10 minutes and drained them. I sauteed onions, celery, garlic and bacon, added thyme and bay leaf and cooked until the bacon was crispy. I whisked in flour and chilli flakes, and added chicken broth. It didn't need any additional salt.
I smashed the potatoes a little bit and threw them in two batches into the deep fryer for about 5 minutes. They did not get golden, but got a little brown. I removed them from the fryer and topped with the bacon gravy and ricotta salata. Very good!
