Elevated Potato Skins
Level: Intermediate
Total: 1 hr 55 min
Active: 1 hr
Yield: 4 servings


Canola oil, for frying
6 russet potatoes, scrubbed and washed
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 leeks, cleaned, cut into 1/4-inch dice
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
8 ounces Brie, cubed
8 thin slices prosciutto, torn
1/4 cup finely sliced fresh chives


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pierce the potatoes a few times with a fork, then place directly on the center rack in the oven. Bake until tender, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, 1 teaspoon salt and 3 or 4 turns pepper; saute until the leeks are wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and thyme and saute until lightly browned, another 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Halve the baked potatoes lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Set aside to cool. Reserve the potato innards for another use.

Fill a deep, heavy pot with 3 inches of canola oil; heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer.
Working in batches, fry the potato skins in the oil until crispy and golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Arrange the fried potato skins, scooped-side up, on a baking sheet. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 3 or 4 turns pepper. Fill the skins with the mushroom-leek filling and top with the Brie and prosciutto. Transfer to the oven and bake until the brie is melted and the prosciutto crispy, 6 to 8 minutes. Garnish with the chives and serve.
