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 


  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.
