Preparation

Blommin Potato Build

  1. A) For large yellow potato version- cut small piece off bottom of potato to create flat base and then cross cut 1/4″, using chopstick or other guide to keep from cutting all of the way through, creating bloomin style potato (see pictures) B) For small potato version, cut a small piece off of each potato creating a flat base and placing each potato on this flat base cut each potato using the apple slicer but not cutting all of the way through, then using a paring knife or Parisian scoop remove and reserve for another purpose the centerpiece, creating a blossom shaped potato.
  2. For the yellow potatoes place skewers in each cut to help the bloom remain open when frying. Small potaotes do not require this. If using skewers remove after the first fry.
  3. Par fry desired potato at 300f for approx 7 minutes until softened but not colored, drain well, these can be refrigerated and held 8 hours for service.

  5. Serve with a side of sauce and garnishes of bacon, green onion and tomato sprinkled over potatoes. Small form Blossoms can utilize the center vacant space in each bloom to hold sauce and garnishes if desired.
