Strip House Potatoes Romanoff

Twice-baked potatoes take on bold new dimensions of flavor in a rich, creamy gratin with shallots and cheddar cheese. This dish is one of the signature sides at Strip House, a steakhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The potatoes need to be baked a day in advance, so plan accordingly.

Ingredients

  • 3

    large russet potatoes, about 2 lb. total, unpeeled and scrubbed

  • 3/4

    cup minced shallots

  • 2 1/2

    cups grated white cheddar cheese

  • 2

    tsp. kosher salt

  • 1/4

    tsp. freshly ground white pepper

  • 1 1/2

    cups sour cream

Directions

Preheat an oven to 425ºF. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil and pierce several times with a fork. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Remove the foil and let the potatoes cool to room temperature. Place the potatoes on a plate, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next day, preheat the oven to 350ºF. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate the potatoes, including the skins. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the shallots, 1 3/4 cups of the cheese, the salt and white pepper on top. Using your hands, gently toss the mixture together to combine, then fold in the sour cream in 2 additions. Transfer the potato mixture to a 1 1/2-quart gratin dish; do not compress. Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup cheese on top. Bake until the potatoes are hot and the cheese is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serves 6.
