Ingredients

Add all
  • 1-2

    unpeeled medium potatoes

  • 2 4 oz
    (2 125 g)

    logs of soft goat's milk cheese, at room temperature

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 Tbsp.
    (60 mL)

    extra virgin olive oil

  • mesclun or spring mix greens as needed

  • black kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped, as needed

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In a pot, cook potatoes until tender, 20-30 minutes. Drain, peel and slice very thin. Set aside.

In a bowl, cream and season cheese.

Cover the bottoms of 2 3-in. (7.5-cm) ramekins with 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) oil each.

Cut cheese logs in two. Spread half in circles over oil in ramekins.

Overlay with potato slices, and cover with second quantity of cheese.

Drizzle a bit of oil over top and bake until cheese is golden brown and the cake crispy, about 30 minutes.

Cool a bit before serving.

In a bowl, toss greens with remaining oil, and divide between two plates.

Turn out potato cakes, one to a plate and garnish with chopped olives.
