DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Coarsely chop/smash potatoes so that they are in small chunks (these are hash browns, after all); season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • In an omelet pan or cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Press potatoes into pan in an even layer; cook until underside is browned (potatoes will be fragrant and edges will start to look golden), about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Place potatoes in oven and cook until the top starts to brown, about 10 minutes (you want it to be stiff enough to flip without breaking).
  • Carefully flip onto serving dish (or back into pan).
  • Spread sour cream over the top, then sprinkle with cheese.
  • Set to broil and return to oven to brown the top, 2 minutes.
  • Garnish with chives (Jacques stuck them in a bunch, on end, in the center of the dish); serve in wedges.
