Michelin-starred chefs share 7 easy potato dishes you can make that aren't french fries

Insider asked Michelin-starred chefs to share their favorite recipe with potatoes.

Pommes fondant will transport you to France, while tortilla Española will make you dream of Spain.

Chefs also gave us their tips and tricks for making the best potato salad and hash browns.

Take your traditional potato salad up a notch by first cooking your spuds in hot chicken broth.

Curtis Stone, who runs Maude and Gwen in Los Angeles, told Insider that this trick takes his favorite potato salad from "everyday to extra special."

"I think of this salad as a bit of a wingman because I take it everywhere with me," he said. "It never fails me at picnics, barbecues, or at my own dinner table."

To make Stone's potato salad for eight, you'll need: 4 pounds of Yukon gold potatoes (peeled, cut into 1 ½-inch chunks), 8 ounces bacon (finely diced), 1 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth, 2 medium shallots (finely chopped), ⅓ cup cornichons (finely chopped), ¼ cup drained capers, ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (finely chopped), and ⅓ cup aioli or mayonnaise.

Begin by placing your potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and boil your potatoes for about 10 minutes, until they're just tender.

While your potatoes are boiling, cook your bacon over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet for about six minutes, until they're crispy and golden brown. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels.

Then, in a small saucepan, bring the chicken broth to simmer over high heat. Add your shallots, cornichons, and capers. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer very gently for two to three minutes, until the shallots soften slightly. Remove from heat.

Drain the potatoes in a colander and gently shake them to release any excess moisture. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Add one-third of the broth mixture to your hot potatoes and, using a silicone spatula, gently fold and turn the potatoes in the hot broth for about two minutes — until most of it has been absorbed. Repeat two more times, adding just enough of the broth to moisten. The potatoes should break down a bit.

Gently fold the bacon and parsley into the warm potatoes, then gently fold in the aioli or mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Stone said you can serve the salad warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Pommes fondant may sound fancy, but this simple dish only takes 10 minutes of prep.

Stone loves using this classic French cooking technique — also known as fondant potatoes — when he's craving taters.

To make Stone's version of fondant potatoes for two, you'll need: 1 large Russet potato, ¼ cup chicken stock, 80 grams unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, 2 thyme sprigs, 1 rosemary sprig, and 1 garlic clove (peeled, smashed).

First, trim the sides off the potato to give it a square shape. Cut your trimmed potato lengthways into 3-centimeter-thick slabs, then create potato rounds from the slabs.

Heat your oil over medium-high heat in a small saucepan. Season potato rounds with salt and add them to the pan. Cook the potatoes for about four minutes, until their undersides have turned golden brown.

Turn your potatoes over and add the butter, stock, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. Cover the potatoes in the pan with parchment paper and reduce the heat to a simmer.

Cook your potatoes for 25 minutes, until they're tender. Keep the fondant potatoes warm until you're ready to serve.

A tortilla Española will transport you to Spain at any time of day.

Chris Morgan, who runs Bammy's in Washington, DC, told Insider that tortilla Española is his favorite potato dish "without a doubt."

"Tortilla Española is classically eaten throughout the day," he said. "It's a fun Spanish recipe that you can adapt, and there are fun ways to up the ante with chorizo or different cheeses."

Morgan loves going the classic route. To make his version of tortilla Española, you just need: 4 large Idaho potatoes (peeled and cut into ⅛-inch slices), 4 large eggs, 1 large onion (julienned), and ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil.

First, heat your olive oil in a sauté pan (Morgan recommends using a nonstick pan) and throw in your potato slices one at a time so they don't stick together. Add your onion on top of the potatoes and slowly cook everything over medium heat, turning the potatoes and onions so they don't burn. Cook until they're just tender.

Drain the oil, saving it for later, and set your potato and onion mixture aside. Wipe out the pan.

Whisk your eggs in a separate bowl until they turn frothy. Add the potato and onions and mix until they're well-coated. Allow to sit for 20 minutes.

Add three tablespoons of the reserved oil to your sauté pan and heat until it just starts to smoke. Throw in your egg and potato mixture and spread so that it forms an even layer in the pan. Lower the heat to medium and shake the pan often to prevent it from sticking.

When the eggs and edges are noticeably beginning to brown underneath, flip the tortilla onto a plate. Add one more tablespoon of your reserved oil to the sauté pan and slide the tortilla back into the pan, cooking the other side for three to four minutes.

Flip the tortilla two more times to help with even cooking and shaping the edges. Remove from the pan and cut into wedges.

Or get your potato fix by serving them in the rösti style inspired by Switzerland.

"In Switzerland, rösti means 'crisp and golden,'" Chef Patrick O'Connell, who runs The Inn at Little Washington, explained to Insider. "The word has become synonymous with the country's famous potato cake."

O'Connell, whose three-star restaurant was also recently awarded the Green Michelin Star for sustainability, loves serving his rösti potatoes with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for brunch.

"The potato cake makes a delicious cushion for ribbons of smoked salmon and lightly scrambled eggs," he said. "This dish is a lighter and more interesting brunch dish than the usual eggs Benedict."

To make O'Connell's rösti potatoes for six, you'll need: 2 large Idaho potatoes, ½ cup clarified butter, 12 eggs, 12 slices smoked salmon, 5 tablespoons crème fraîche, 2 teaspoons capers, 2 teaspoons red onion (finely diced), 2 teaspoons fresh chives (finely chopped), 2 teaspoons fresh dill (chopped).

Begin by peeling the potatoes and steaming them for 15 minutes. Let them cool, then use a box grater to shred the potatoes. Season the shredded potatoes with salt and white pepper and shape them into six cakes.

In a large skillet, heat half of your butter over medium heat. Place three of the cakes into the skillet and cook them for about five to seven minutes per side. Remove and drain them on paper towels. Repeat the step for the remaining cakes.

To make the scrambled eggs, first whisk your eggs together with 3 tablespoons of the crème fraîche, along with salt and pepper, in a stainless-steel bowl. Then place the bowl over a simmering pot of water, stirring and folding the eggs with a rubber spatula until they're very lightly scrambled.

To serve, place one of your rösti potatoes in the center of each plate. Add two slices of salmon on top, as well as a spoonful of scrambled eggs and a small dollop of crème fraîche. Top everything off with your capers, red onion, chives, and dill.

These Japanese sweet potatoes with a creamy Italian dressing could be a standout side dish, or the star of the dinner table.

"This is definitely our favorite potato recipe, and one of our favorite dishes in general!" Angie Rito and Scott Tacinello, the husband-and-wife team behind Don Angie, told Insider. "We love that the tangy creamy Italian dressing and sumac spice mix both offer acidity to balance the sweetness of the potatoes. The Parmesan and chives add even more savoriness, resulting in a very craveable dish."

To make the Japanese sweet potatoes for six, you'll need: 4 medium Japanese sweet potatoes (scrubbed clean), 2 heads of garlic (sliced in half horizontally), and Kosher salt.

First, place your potatoes and garlic in a large pot and cover with cool water by an inch. Heavily season it with salt ("like seawater") and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Cook the potatoes for 25 to 30 minutes, until they're fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and set them aside until they're cool enough to handle but still warm.

Then, with a fork, gently break the potato apart into rustic pieces about 1 ½ to 2-inches in size. Add the pieces to a large mixing bowl and toss with 1 cup of potato starch, evenly coating all slides.

"It's important that the potatoes are still warm at this point. The residual heat helps the starch adhere and activates it," Rito and Tacinello told Insider. "This step ensures a very crisp outer coating when you fry the potatoes."

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a sheet tray or large plate and place them in the refrigerator to chill for 45-60 minutes.

While your potatoes are cooling, make the spice mixture: Add 2 tablespoons granulated onion, 2 tablespoons granulated garlic, 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon sumac, and ½ teaspoon dried oregano into a small bowl and whisk everything together until they're evenly combined. Set aside.

You can also make the dressing. Throw ⅓ cup creme fraîche, ¾ cup Kewpie mayonnaise, ¼ cup white wine vinegar, ⅓ cup coarsely grated Parmesan (preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano), 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and ¼ cup of water all into a blender. Mix on high for 30 seconds, until they're well-combined.

Then, with the blender running on slow, slowly drizzle in ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil and ½ cup neutral oil (such as vegetable) for about 20 seconds, until they're well-incorporated. Set aside.

To fry your potatoes, first heat 8 cups of neutral oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until it reaches about 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, working in batches to avoid overcrowding, fry your potatoes for 3-4 minutes, until they're golden brown and crispy. Set them in a large mixing bowl and toss with half of the spice mixture. Repeat the process until all your potatoes are fried and spiced.

Arrange your seasoned potatoes on a serving platter and drizzle with one cup of the dressing, putting the rest in a small side bowl for dipping. Garnish your potatoes with additional Parmesan and chives.

Pro tip: If you want to skip the hassle of frying, Rito and Tacinello said you can achieve a similar (but less crispy) result by cubing your potatoes, tossing them in olive oil, and roasting them in the oven for about an hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Elevate your morning hash browns with some chives and Parmesan.

"I love a good crispy hash brown, where the outside is nice and golden-brown and the inside is soft," Soo Ahn, chef of the soon-to-be-open Adalina in Chicago, told Insider. "That's why I love hash browns that have been cooked on both sides to give that greater ratio of crispiness to tenderness."

To make Ahn's hash browns, you'll need: 2 peeled potatoes, 6 tablespoons bacon fat, 4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, and 2 tablespoons chives (chopped).

First, grate your peeled potatoes and wring out all the excess moisture. Then, pour some of the bacon fat into a pan and turn the heat up to medium-high.

Add your grated potatoes to the pan and season with salt and pepper. After about five to six minutes, once your potatoes are crispy and brown, flip them over and cook for another five to six minutes.

Finish off your hash browns with parmesan and chives. Breakfast is served!

Or skip your usual pancakes for a Korean potato pancake instead.

Suyoung Park, the executive chef of Jungsik in Manhattan, told Insider that this is her favorite recipe with potatoes.

"It's so savory and crispy, and it has a similar taste to a hash brown," she added. "It's very easy and simple — that's the way Korean people love it!"

To make Park's potato pancakes at home, you'll need: 2 medium potatoes (peeled, thinly sliced), ½ medium onion (peeled, thinly sliced), 1 green chili (seeded, thinly sliced), and ¼ carrot (thinly sliced).

Begin by julienning your potatoes and soaking them in cold water for at least five minutes. Park said this step is essential for removing the starch from the potatoes. Then dry them with a kitchen towel.

Mix your green chili, onion, and carrot with ½ teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of flour, and 1 tablespoon of the potato starch. Add your potatoes to the mixture.

Place a pan on medium heat and add plenty of cooking oil. Spread your potato slices onto the pan and cook until they're browned, making sure to turn it over and cook the other side as well.

Park recommends serving your Korean potato pancakes with soy pickles or an easy dipping sauce — just mix equal parts soy sauce, vinegar, water, sugar, and chili powder.

Recipe: Potato Salad with Saffron and Herbs, for Beth

This is another recipe that I promised to pass on more than a year ago. Maybe two years go. Oh dear. Sorry, Beth… Anyway, this recipe’s a real delight – light and herby and tangy, without the creaminess of traditional potato salads, but with so much more sharpness and flavour. Also, it’s vegan!

The recipe originated in Julie LeClerc’s cookbook, Made in Morocco, which I can heartily recommend, though not quite as much as Taking Tea In the Medina, which I love even more and is one of my go-to books for things middle-eastern. I’ve added more herbs, and have upped the dressing-to-potato recipe because I’m evil like that. Enjoy!

Your Shopping List

Now What Will You Do With It?

Halve the potatoes if they are on the large side, and cook in boiling water until just tender. Drain and cut in half (or quarters if they were already in halves).

While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the other ingredients.

In a large bowl, soak the saffron in a tablespoon of very hot water, to infuse. Chop the onions very finely and add to the saffron and water with the crushed garlic. Pour in your oil and vinegar and whisk to combine, then chop all the herbs and add them in with the salt and pepper. Stir.

Add the potatoes while still hot, and toss everything well to combine. Eat while warm, or at room temperature. But do toss it again if it stands for a while before eating.

This is already vegan, gluten-free and nut-free, of course, and it’s fairly low-fructose, too. You could make a lower-GI version of this by using half and half potatoes and sweet potatoes (though new potatoes are actually not too bad, glycemic index-wise, especially once you add vinegar). Just don’t overcook the sweet potatoes as they will become mush quite easily. Or use this dressing over cooked (or tinned and drained) cannelini or butterbeans for a really delicious bean salad.

If you wanted to make this super-pretty, you could add in some edible flowers just before serving – nasturtiums, rosemary and sage flowers and so forth. Yum.


Dressing up, dressing down

Constance Spry recipe potato salad. Photograph: Felicity Cloake

Some of you may well think that, if one is stupid enough to try and peel hot potatoes, minor burns are no more than just desserts – in which case I refer you to Constance Spry's observation, in her nigh legendary Cookery Book, that it is of prime importance that "the dressing should be poured over the cooked potatoes while these are still hot in order that it may penetrate into the slices". This is certainly true: most of the vinaigrette added to cold cooked potatoes runs off, and ends up in the bottom of the bowl.

What kind of dressing to use, however, is less clear. Jane Grigson's Vegetable Book suggests that it must be "well-flavoured", suggesting white wine or vinaigrette. Constance Spry, the Riverford Farm Cook Book, and the Prawn Cocktail Years all plump for the latter, and I can see why – wine just isn't acidic enough here: the bland, almost buttery flavour of a new potato needs something sharper. Riverford Farm uses a simple oil and vinegar mixture, but adding a little mustard, as Simon Hopkinson and Lindsey Bareham do, gives a nice little kick.

Juice of 2 lemons, keep separate
Juice of 2 limes
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Prepare grill by lighting high heat on 1 side, no heat on the other.

2. Pat fish fillets dry with paper towel and season with salt, pepper and some torn basil leaves.

3. Cook fish, skin-side down, on cold side of grill until fish can be pulled from skin, around 7 minutes depending on thickness of fillet.

1. Bring water, basil stems (wrapped in cheesecloth for easier removal, if desired) and a pinch of salt to boil on grill in a small sauce pan.

2. Add dry couscous, cover and remove from grill. Let steep for 5 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fluff grain with fork, adjust seasoning.

3. Remove basil stems and fold in half the bunch of basil leaves. Keep warm.

To make the baby vegetables:

1. Wash zucchini and pattypan squash in cool water, and cut in half lengthwise.

2. Peel baby carrots and cut in half lengthwise.

3. Wash baby bell peppers and leave whole.

4. Season vegetables with salt, pepper and olive oil.

5. Start by cooking carrots cut-side down on hot side of grill, moving often to prevent flare-ups. Once a good char has occurred, move carrots to cold side of grill until tender.

6. Repeat previous step for zucchini and pattypans.

7. Place seasoned whole peppers on hot side of grill and treat in same fashion as other vegetables.

8. When all vegetables are at desired tenderness, remove from heat, toss in just enough olive oil to lightly coat and add lemon juice to taste, with a small amount of torn basil leaves, and adjust salt and pepper. Keep warm.

1. Wash and remove core from green tomatoes.

2. Add tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, garlic and shallot to blender. Puree with lime juice. Add small amounts of olive oil until the puree is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Keep cool until serving.

Note: You may find yourself with excess gazpacho. Chef Lyon recommends refrigerating and having for lunch the next day.

To make the cherry tomato arugula salad:

1. Wash and halve tomatoes. Mix in bowl with arugula, salt and pepper to taste (arugula is naturally peppery in flavor, so taste often during seasoning), olive oil and as much of the juice of the second lemon as desired.

2. To plate, use a spoon to drizzle gazpacho on the plate. Top with couscous, then fish and vegetables. Top with the salad, which should fall into place and cover the dish beautifully. Serves 2.

NY TIMES Cooking

TIME 1 hour, with prepared lobster stock

INGREDIENTS
Good olive oil, as needed
4 to 8 thick slices good bread
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 celery stalks, trimmed and chopped
1 carrot, trimmed and chopped
1 medium new potato, peeled and chopped
1 small bulb fennel, trimmed and chopped
¼ teaspoon saffron, optional
3 cups lobster or fish stock
2 cups chopped tomatoes, with their juice (canned are O.K.)
Salt and pepper
1 to 1 ½ pounds chopped boneless fish and shellfish, preferably a variety
8 littleneck clams
8 mussels
2 sea scallops
2 tablespoons Pernod or other pastis, optional
Chopped fennel fronds, for garnish
Chopped basil or parsley, for garnish
Rouille, optional

PREPARATION
Heat oven to 400 degrees brush bread liberally with olive oil, and bake on a sheet, turning once, until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Add enough olive oil to a Dutch oven, deep skillet or shallow pot to make a thick layer (don't skimp) on the bottom. In it, cook onion, garlic, celery, carrot, potato, fennel and saffron until glossy. Add stock and tomato and bring to a moderate boil cook until thick and stewy rather than soupy. Season to taste it should be so delicious that you don’t even care whether you add fish.
Lower heat to a simmer, and, as you add fish, adjust heat so that the liquid continues to bubble gently. Add fish in order of how long they will take to cook. Monkfish, striped bass and squid are fish that might require more than a few minutes, so add them first. About five minutes later add clams and mussels, holding back any fish that has been cooked or will cook in a flash. When mollusks open, add remaining fish. Cut scallops into quarters and place in the bottom of 4 bowls.
Add pastis if you're using it taste and adjust seasoning. Ladle hot soup and fish over the scallops, distributing clams and mussels evenly. Garnish and serve with croutons and rouille, if you're using.

Tip
To make rouille, add 1/2 cup finely minced roasted, peeled and seeded red bell pepper, 2 cloves finely minced garlic and cayenne to taste to either homemade or store-bought mayonnaise.

Steak Spiced PEI Mussels

Servings: 4-6 Cooking Time: 10 min

Ingredients
5 lb (2.2 kg) fresh PEI Mussels
1/2 cup (125 mL) water
4 Tbsp (60 mL) of Montreal Steak Spice
Crusty bread for the broth
Dash of Worcestershire sauce - optional for extra kick

If Montreal Steak Spice is unavailable use:
1 tbsp (15 mL) garlic powder
1 tbsp (15 mL) ground coriander
1 tbsp (15 mL) dried thyme
1 tbsp (15 mL) dried rosemary
2 tbsp (30 mL) Worcestershire sauce

Rinse fresh PEI Mussels under tap water. Tap any mussels that are still open and discard any that do not close after being tapped and rinsed. Set aside.

In a large pot, combine the water and Montreal Steak Sauce. If unavailable, ground together garlic, coriander, thyme and rosemary and add to the pot together with Worcestershire sauce.

Add the mussels and cover with a lid. Turn the heat to high and cook until steam pours out from under the lid and the shells are open, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 1 minute. Discard any mussels that do not open.

Stir mussels well to coat with sauce. Transfer to a large serving bowl and enjoy.

Warm new potato salad with chives and saffron recipe - Recipes

Potato salads are well loved favorites anytime of year, but I think especially during the hot summer months when most of us don't feel like fussing too much over a hot stove. In addition, they are portable and easily transported to potlucks, barbecues or packed for a picnic. The advantage this particular creamy potato salad has for taking along for a gathering is that it's dairy-free, so it won't spoil in the heat, especially if packed into a cooler.

I originally was going to go with an oil-based dressing for this salad, but instead went with cashews for a burst of protein. The result was a creamy dressing with some olive oil, zesty fresh lemon juice, nutritional yeast for a bit of cheesy flavor, some almond milk to thin it out, some zingy mustard and fresh herbs. Combine this dressing with baby potatoes, fresh peas, plump and salty Kalamata olives and freshly torn fragrant basil leaves. You end up with a refreshing and filling salad for any occasion. I assure you the mayonnaise won't be missed.

The only complaint from those who got to try the salad — "you should have doubled the recipe"!

This recipe was inspired by some samples I received of mustard from Maille Canada. They now have mustard available in convenient squeeze bottles. I've been purchasing Maille mustard for years in jar form and its silky texture and tart flavor never disappoints. A little goes a long way. I was also surprised to see how many different varieties of mustard the company offers. In addition to their traditional offerings, the selection of gourmet mustards are quite intriguing.

Creamy Potato Salad with Cashew Dressing and Fresh Basil
Recipe by Lisa Turner
Published on July 20, 2016

Creamy potato and pea salad in a creamy cashew and mustard "mayonnaise" style dressing

  • 1 1/2 lb (700 g) baby potatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas, blanched
  • 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly torn if large
  • 1/4 Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped (optional)
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in warm water for a few hours and drained
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice from 2 lemons (3 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast, to taste
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons almond milk, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon honey mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, or to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Bring the potatoes to a boil in a large pot of water. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until they are fork tender — about 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well and let cool for 10 minutes or longer before transferring to a large bowl along with the peas, basil leaves and olives if using.

To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a small blender or food processor and pulse into smooth. If it is too thick, add a bit more olive oil or almond milk. Taste for seasoning and adjust nutritional yeast, salt and pepper to taste. Toss the potatoes with the dressing and serve.

Farideh Sadeghin

The potato is the ultimate multi-purpose versatile side dish (or a main dish we’re also prone to the occasional irrepressible mashed potato craving). A staple across the world, it is used in countless different ways. Far from just a filler, the potato can be an exciting, delicious ingredient. Try it in a potato salad flavored with curry powder, chives, parsley, or anything, really. Roasted potatoes are another simple, hearty side perfect for a winter meal.
