Fondant Potatoes, or Pommes Fondant, is an amazing recipe using russet Idaho® potatoes which are cut into cylinders and seared to golden perfection. They're then cooked in a rich stock with garlic, butter and herbs to ensure a smooth, creamy texture inside, with an amazing aroma.
See Edyta's full post here, including step-by-step photos on shaping the potatoes.
The butter will give the potatoes a nice sear and taste, but it can burn easily. Adding some olive oil can help prevent that.
If you still end up with a lot of liquid in your skillet, move the potatoes onto a serving plate and loosely cover them with a foil. Turn the heat on under the skillet and cook the sauce until reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Spoon the remaining sauce over the potatoes.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
