(Recipe) White Cheddar Potatoes, warmed
1. Place washed potatoes in a large pot. Fill with enough cold water to just cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat until they are tender and can be pierced with a fork. Place the potatoes in a colander and drain.
2. Add the oil to a heated, nonstick sauté pan. Add the onions and garlic. Cook until the onions are tender.
3. Add the potatoes to a large, stainless-steel mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the onions, garlic, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix on low speed until potatoes are mixed but still chunky. Do not mash completely. Spread the potatoes out in a 4" full-size hotel pan to cool. Cover with film wrap, label, date and refrigerate for future service. CCP: Refrigerate at 41°F, or below.
(Recipe) Haystack Onions
1. Using an electric slicer with the blade set at #7, slice the onions into thin rings. Toss the sliced onions to separate them.
2. Working in small batches, toss the onion rings in flour. Shake the excess flour off the onion rings. Transfer the floured rings to a large mesh strainer set inside a 2" full-size hotel pan. Transfer the floured onion rings to a fryer basket. Fill basket no more than a depth of 2". Deep-fry the onions in 350°F oil, turning them in the oil with metal tongs to ensure they do not stick together. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towel.
1. Place the water, apple juice, and pork base in a nonstick sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Stir until base has dissolved. Place in a covered storage container, label, date, and refrigerate for future service. CCP: Refrigerate at 41°F, or below.
2. Blanch the Brussels sprouts, turnips, parsnips, and rutabagas separately in boiling salted water. Cook to desired doneness then cool under cold running water. Allow to drain. Place in separate covered storage containers, label, date, and refrigerate for future service. CCP: Refrigerate at 41°F, or below.
3. Peel and dice the apples. Slice the pork into 12 oz. portions. Place in a covered storage container, label, date, and refrigerate for future service. CCP: Refrigerate at 41°F, or below.
