Ingredients

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 

1/3 cup finely chopped fresh chives 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

6 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed 

3/4 cup Fromage Fort, recipe follows

Fromage Fort:

1/2 pound leftover cheese pieces

1 clove garlic 

1/4 cup white wine 

Salt and pepper to taste 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Stir together the butter, olive oil, chives and some salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Lay a potato lengthwise between the handles of 2 chopsticks. Slice the potato thinly, using the chopsticks to stop you from slicing all the way through. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
  4. Put the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush on the butter mixture, making sure to get in between all the slices. Bake until tender and crisp, 45 to 50 minutes.
  5. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons Fromage Fort over top of each and bake until cheese is golden brown and bubbly, an additional 8 to 10 minutes.

Fromage Fort:

  1. Add cheese, garlic, wine and some salt and pepper to a food processor and blend until smooth.
