Prep Time: 195min | Cook Time: 5min

  1. To make the dough: Put the potato in a lightly salted water in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain. Place in a mixing bowl, whip until smooth, add dehydrated potato flakes.  Hydrate the yeast in the warm water for a few minutes.  Stir together the egg, melted butter, turmeric, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the milk and mix well.  Add yeast to the potatoes in a large mixing bowl with a dough hook.  Blend the egg/milk mixture into the potato/yeast and incorporate.  Fold in flour and salt and mix with a dough hook on medium speed until the dough reaches a final clear or can be stretched to see daylight.  Rest the dough in a greased bowl for about 1 hour (until doubled in volume), punch down.  Dough can be chilled and stored covered in the refrigerator at this point or used immediately.

  1. To make the Spudnuts: Turn dough out onto a floured surface, divide into two, 1 lb 4 oz. dough portions and roll each out to ~ 1/8” thickness, 12” x 15” rectangle that is divided into 3” x 3” squares. Trip the edges straight and rework the trim to roll out another 6” x 9” rectangle.  Dock the dough liberally with a docking tool or a fork.  Cut the dough into 28 rectangles (3”x2”) or 28, ¾ oz. rectangles of dough. Place a #60 scoop of the filling (just less than ½ oz.) in the center on each rectangle, and fold the dough over to make a log.  Aplly a little bit of water to the seam if the dough is dry.  Pinch the ends to crimp.  Transfer the spudnuts to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.  Proof for 30 minutes.

Chili and cheese filling: Sautee shallot in butter until soft and translucent.  Mix all ingredients. Cover, label and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Deep fat fry the Spudnuts at 350 F. for approximately 3 minutes. Transfer them to paper towels to drain.  Toss with seasoning salt.  Keep warm.

Mock Hollandaise: Mix all ingredients. Cover, label and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Serve spudnuts warm with the mock hollandaise.
