Twisted Potatoes with Frankfurter Bacon and Cheese

Method

  • Wash and dry the potatoes very well.
  • Insert wooden skewers in the center, lengthwise.
  • Using a very sharp knife, cut the potatoes in a spiral fashion.
  • The knife should reach all the way to the wooden skewer and the spiral should be in one piece.
  • Try to make the spiral as thin as possible. 2-3 mm thick so that the potatoes can turn out as crunchy as possible.
  • Gently and carefully spread the spiral open along the skewer so that it looks like a spring that is spread out all along the length of the skewer.
  • In a deep, wide pot, add enough sunflower oil so that half of the pot is filled.
  • Place over high heat and let the sunflower oil heat to 180* C (350* F).
  • Place the skewers with the potato spirals in the pot, making sure they don’t touch each other.
  • Fry until golden and super crunchy.
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • When the potatoes are ready, remove them from the pot with a slotted spoon. Transfer to a baking pan fitted with a wire rack and let them drain from excess oil for about 1 minute.
  • Place the skewers on the rack with a slight inclination so that the spiral potatoes can cook evenly.
  • Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and carefully remove the skewers.
  • Transfer the spirals to a 20x25 cm ovenproof baking dish.
  • Add the gouda, bacon, sausage and sprinkle with thyme.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven.
  • Top with the chopped tomato, spring onion and parsley.
  • Serve.
