Old-school Translations

c=cup; T=tablespoon; t=teaspoon



Set a skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons oil. Once it begins to shimmer, add shallots and cook until translucent. Transfer shallots to a dish and set aside.

Add potatoes to the skillet, seasoning with sea salt and pepper. Cook until brown and tender, about 12 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat and transfer cooked potatoes to a dish. Using a heavy spoon or back of a bowl, smash potatoes, while leaving some chunks. Set skillet over medium heat.

Add 2 tablespoons oil and flour, cooking 1 minute.

Stir in milk and beef broth, cooking until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low. While stirring, slowly add Monterey Jack, sharp cheddar and Pecorino Romano. Continue stirring until cheese has completely melted.

Add shallots, potatoes and garlic paste, stirring to fully incorporate. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.

Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle in crumbled bleu cheese and enjoy immediately.
