Our friend Marissa will be jetting off to Jakarta soon for a new job, so Elina had us over for potluck dinner and card games last Sunday. Danial made roast chicken and Elina made rotkohl, so I decided to bring some form of starch as a complementing side dish. It was either the baked potato casserole or this interesting potato dish by Emeril, and finally our host chose this one.
People say potatoes a la boulangere make a great side dish for roast chicken. Making it wasn’t difficult, but rather time consuming. A sharp, heavy knife worked wonders for me when slicing the onions and potatoes into even-sized pieces. I also took my time to properly caramelize the onions and potatoes, and I think this gave the dish a wonderful flavor. An excellent dish for potlucks, which you can make ahead on those busy days.
