Today’s recipe for Rissole Potatoes Fresco is a simple and elegant side dish for a holiday or any special meal!
Rissole, (pronounced ‘rihs-uh-LAY’), refers to the French method of cooking food by frying until crisp and brown. It sounds complicated – but it really is quite simple – and the results are potatoes that are soft and creamy on the inside, and crisp and flavorful on the outside! Although rissole potatoes are typically served tossed with melted butter, parsley and chives – our version also adds extra toppings including scallions, crisp crumbled bacon, and crumbled queso fresco cheese for a slightly more decadent version!
You’ve most likely eaten rissole potatoes before – but may not have known that they have this special name! Because they are easy to prepare in commercial kitchens and have a nice presentation, rissole’ potatoes are often served at weddings and catered events. (And now you can make them at home – but your guests don’t need to know how easy they are to make!)
