A Little Time and a Keyboard: Reubenesque Potatoes and a {giveaway!}

Reubenesque Potatoes and a {giveaway!}

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

As the temperatures begin to dip outside, piping hot dishes right out of the oven sound more and more appealing. Nothing is quite like
a nice warm meal after being out in brisker temperatures. Recently, Klondike Brand Potatoes contacted me about using Klondike Rose Potatoes in a new recipe inspired by fall produce. Being a total potato fan, I had to meet the challenge.

I discussed last week that I have been buying this awesome red cabbage from our local market. It is surprisingly sweet. Love it! Inspired by this cabbage, I opted to give a little reuben spin to the Klondike Rose Potatoes. Notice I said spin--I am straying a bit from a traditional reuben. The resulting dish was tasty and one I would make again.


2 large Klondike Rose Potatoes
2-3 slices pastrami
1/2 cup sliced red cabbage (sliced thin)
1/4 cup diced Emmental cheese
1/4 cup yogurt
1 tsp horseradish


Wash and peel potatoes. Cut into wedges. Boil potato wedges for 15-20 minutes. When they are done, they will be soft when you touch them with a fork. Preheat oven to 350. Slice pastrami into small stripes. Slice red cabbage into thin strips. Layer potato wedges into a casserole dish.

Then, layer on the pastrami. Finally, layer the cabbage on top. Place casserole dish into oven and bake 10 minutes.

 While baking, melt cheese in sauce pan over low heat. As cheese is melting, add yogurt. Continue to melt while stirring. This will take awhile. However, you will want to heat the two ingredients slow to prevent curdling. (I walked away to look at spices and strayed a little too long, so we got a little curdling.) Once almost entirely melted, add horseradish. Remove the potatoes from the oven. You can either drizzle the sauce on and serve or stick the potatoes back into the oven after drizzling on the cheese sauce for a little browning.

Result: Yummy potatoes with a great serving of healthy, red cabbage!
