Ingredients

2 1/2 pound red potatoes, scrubbed and halved

12 garlic cloves, peeled

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 large egg

1 large egg yolk

2 tablespoons whole milk

3 tablespoons olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes, garlic, and the 1 teaspoon kosher salt in an 8-quart pan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water to a gentle boil and cook until the potatoes are just tender. Drain the potatoes, return them to the pot, and stir over medium heat for 1 minute to dry the potatoes.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons of the cornmeal and the parsley and mash everything together with a potato masher, leaving the mixture chunky.
  3. Whisk together the egg, egg yolk, milk, and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a small bowl. Stir the mixture into the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes out on a large plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Form the chilled potato mixture into 16 cakes about 3/4 inch thick. Put the remaining 5 tablespoons cornmeal in a shallow dish and coat the potato cakes in the cornmeal.
  6. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the potato cakes, in batches, and brown them on both sides.
  7. Transfer the potato cakes to a baking sheet and bake until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
