2 large baking potatoes
1 extra-large egg, whisked
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons clarified butter
To make the clarified butter, slowly melt 4 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Set it aside until the milk solids settle. Spoon off any solids that rise, then carefully pour off the golden liquid, discarding the milky part in the bottom of the pan.
