Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion Potato Galette

A while back I was contacted and asked if I might like to create a recipe using Klondike Rose™ potatoes (a red-skinned, yellow-fleshed potato). I didn’t have to think about this one very long. We’re a potato-loving family.

I put these potatoes through their paces. I mashed them. I baked them. I fried them. And no matter how I cooked them, these potatoes were great (and you can’t say that about every potato). I also love that these potatoes don’t need to be peeled. Of course, you can peel them if you like, but if you’re like me and not a fan of that whole potato peeling thing, this is a great potato to just use as it is. The red skin on these potatoes is actually so pretty in potato salads or in mashed potatoes.

After all my potato cooking, this is the dish I wanted to share. It combines 3 of my favourite flavours – goat cheese, caramelized onions and crispy potatoes. And let’s face it, there’s really nothing better than crispy potatoes.

For this dish, the potatoes are thinly sliced (I used a mandolin, but you don’t need one to make this dish), layered in a frying pan with goat cheese and caramelized onions, and baked until crispy on outside and soft and buttery on the inside. You’ll want to be sure to salt each layer to bring out the best flavour in the potatoes. Salt and potatoes belong together! I like to finish with a sprinkling of Maldon salt, just for good measure.
