    RUSSIAN POTATOES

    6 large sweet onions, diced or sliced thinly
    5 tbls. butter
    4 tbls. olive oil
    1 tbls. sugar
    About 4 lbs. of russet potatoes
    chicken stock
    1 stick butter, not margarine
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 cup sour cream
    4 eggs, beaten to blend
    1 tsp. dried dill weed
    2 cups sour cream

    Melt the butter in a large skillet or dutch
    oven. Add the oil and heat. Add the onions,
    stir to coat and reduce the heat to low.
    Cook the onions, stirring ocassionally, until
    they turn a deep brown color. Sprinkle with
    the sugar and continue cooking for a few more
    minutes, stirring. The onions will take
    about an hour.

    Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in enough
    chicken stock to cover. (Cook until slightly
    overdone for the best effect.) Drain the
    potatoes completely, reserving the chicken
    stock. Mash the potatoes. Add the butter,
    cut into pieces to melt. Stir the beaten
    eggs into the 1 cup of sour cream. Add this
    to the hot potatoes, stirring in quickly to
    distribute the egg evenly as it cooks in the
    hot potatoes. Stir in the cream and the dill
    weed. Add enough of the reserved stock to
    make a very loose mashed potato consistency.
    You do not want them to be stiff because they
    will dry out in the oven.

    Grease a casserole dish with butter and add
    half the potatoes. Spread the carmelized
    onions in an even layer over the potatoes.
    Carefully cover the onions with the rest of
    the potatoes, sealing them in. Finally,
    cover the top with a layer of the 2 cups of
    sour cream.

    Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes, or until the
    top is lightly browned.

    Parmesan Smashed Red Potatoes

    Yield: 6 to 8 servings

    3 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled
    1 tablespoon kosher salt
    1 1/2 cups half-and-half
    1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


    Place the potatoes and 1 tablespoon of salt in a 4-quart saucepan with cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer covered for 25 to 35 minutes, until the potatoes are completely tender. Drain.

    In a small saucepan, heat the half-and-half and butter. Transfer the potatoes to an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix them for a few seconds on low speed to break them up. Slowly add the hot cream and butter to the potatoes, mixing on the lowest speed (the last quarter of cream and butter should be folded in by hand). Fold in the sour cream, Parmesan, the remaining salt, and pepper; season, to taste, and serve immediately. If the potatoes are too thick, add more hot cream and butter.

    Keep the smashed potatoes hot in a heat-proof bowl set over simmering water.

    Baked Potato Soup

    BAKED POTATO SOUP

    The next time you bake potatoes, make some extra ones and try this hearty soup. This is also a great soup for using up any leftover boiled potatoes.

    Ingredients:
    * 5 lbs. russet baking potatoes
    * ½ lb. bacon
    * 3 Cups 2% milk
    * 1 stick butter or margarine
    * 3 Cups onion, minced
    * 7½ Cups chicken stock
    * ½-¾ Cup all-purpose flour
    * ½ tsp. thyme (fresh or dried)
    * 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley
    * ¼ teaspoon red cayenne pepper
    * 1 tsp. salt (optional)
    Garnish:
    *shredded cheddar cheese
    *chives


    Preheat oven to 350°. Wash and dry potatoes, poke with a fork, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes until soft. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 1 hour to speed up the cooling. Remove the skins and coarsely chop the potatoes. Set aside. Finely chop the bacon and fry until crispy. Drain the bacon on paper toweling and set aside. Let the milk come to room temperature. Place 1½ Cups of chopped potatoes into a blender. Blend or mash with a little water to make the potatoes thin, yet smooth and creamy. In a large, heavy pot, melt the margarine or butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until they are soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. In a separate pan, heat the chicken broth to boiling. Using a wooden spoon, gradually mix the flour into the onion mixture. Continue stirring mixture for 3 minutes. Do not brown. While stirring the mixture, slowly add the rest of the chicken broth to the onion mixture. Next, add the potato puree. Mix well. Lower the heat to simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Stir often to avoid scorching on the bottom. Add milk, parsley, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and the remaining chopped potatoes. Cover and simmer another 30 minutes, stirring often. If soup is too thick, thin with more milk. Add ¾ of the crisp bacon and mix well. Serve garnished with the remaining bacon, cheddar cheese, and chives, if desired.

    Serves: 8-10
    Prep. time: 30 minutes
    Cooking time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
