Potato Cakes w/ Goat Cheese

Hands on time: 20 minutes, Total time: 90 minutes

Serves 6 as a brunch dish

  • 4 eggs
  • 8 ounces goat cheese softened
  • 1/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup reduced half and half or milk
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup (8 oz) crème fraiche or sour cream

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cheese, flour, milk, salt, and pepper. (It may be slightly lumpy.) Add the potatoes and the scallions and mix well.

Heat a film of oil in a 8-10″ nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/3 the potato batter and spread it evenly with a spatula. Cook until golden brown, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking, about 15 min. Place a dinner plate over the skillet and invert both so the potato cake falls, cooked-side-up, onto the plate. Slide the cake back into the pan and continue cooking until crispy, 10-15 min. Remove the cake from the skillet; cover and keep warm in a 325-degree oven. Add oil to the skillet and repeat with the remaining potato batter. Cut each potato cake into 6 wedges and serve with the crème fraiche or sour cream. Get crazy and garnish with caviar!

(The potato cakes can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Reheat, wrapped in aluminum foil, in a 450 degree oven for 15-20 min.)
