Yield: serves A Crowd
Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-lb.) pork roll
  • 1 small Russet potato (about 6 oz.)
  • 2 cups canola oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 12 cups creme fraiche
  • 4 oz. caviar
  • 1 small bunch chives, cut into 1-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. Slice pork roll into 14-inch thick slices. Using a 1-inch round cutter, cut rounds out of each slice. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high and, working in batches, cook the rounds, flipping once, until golden, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, finely dice the potato. Heat the canola oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high until a deep-fry thermometer reads 350°. Add the potatoes and cook, stirring, until golden, about 2 minutes. Strain over a fine mesh sieve into a saucepan or a heat-proof glass bowl. Transfer potatoes to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and toss with salt.
  3. To serve, spread each pork roll round with about 14 teaspoon of crème fraîche. Top with caviar and crispy potatoes and garnish with a chive.
