Deep Fried Potato Salad
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:38:35 AM »

this is a fun one, takes a bit of chopping work,but turns out different & really extra good.....

1st, chop to fairly small taters & deep fry...
I've used baby reds & golds mixed, medium Yukon golds & russets, liked med. golds best....






"Stubby"
the antique deep fryer, the Weber wok has yet to be used fo this, but I'm sure will work out just fine
I used peanut oil, as it adds an extra layer of flavor to the finished product





Next, deep fry small chopped bacon....
I've begun to use bacon ends for this as you get a much better yeild....
The ratio has climbed to 60% taters / 40% bacon, over time.....






Next part is the cold stuff......
~~>Small dice white sweet onion
~~>Ssmall chop various types pickles
( I just used some of each that were open in the fridge, your choice)
~~>Fairly small chopped celery
~~>Chopped, marinated or plain artichoke hearts



After fried stuff is cooled, mix everything together......
1st shot is a better deep fry, the above pic was a bit overdone ~~>





Then add 50 / 50 mix of mayo & jalepeno ranch dressing.....
( on the left)
 if you can't locate it, here's a link to create it partially from scratch~~>

End product is a little bit loose, you can adjust the amout of added sauces to your liking....



Extra things I've variously added:

Dry dill
A tad bit of rub
Granulated garlic


Another way I want to try this is as a hot, tart German style
with oil ( & maybe a bit of flavored vinegar) salad

With no mayo or ranch...........

Love tater salad, fried sounds even better!

I make huge batches of this stuff & eat leftovers for 5~6 days......Bugs'n' BBQ that just signed up here got real excited when I 1st mentioned it elsewhere & his excitement got me started developing the general recipe.....
It is fairly flexible, in that it takes different spices & different  bulk ingredients changing pretty well......
Play with it & maybe post up results !!!!

I've been trying to get that recipe out of him for awhile... frankly, I don't think he really knows it... just kind of throws it together every time!  It is phenomenal! I'll get back on him about it again...

Looks great Buckie,
I tried this one of Jamie's on the weekend using sweet potato. It turned out pretty good , the flavours are nice, you just need to watch how much of the yoghurt mix you apply

For anyone who hasn't signed up to Webers weekly recipe email it's worth it
The recipes are pretty easy and provide inspiration
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

I'm a big fan of potato salad but I think what I've just seen has taken it to another level.

Kudos, buckie!
