Steamed Potatoes with Melted Brie and Caramelized Onion


I don’t want make any generalization about German men, but based on my experience and on my acquaintances, it seems that they like, should I say, love potatoes. And if you ask them what they would like to eat, it will be most likely potato. Is it a curse or a blessing?!?! I think that most women would welcome this fact because this make cooking dinner easy. Me… it makes cooking twice as hard as I don’t care for potatoes and rather eat vegetables ( no, potatoes does not really belong to the family of vegetable contrary to what husband wants me to think;-)

So while I was getting my dinner ready ( lobster with cream of corn), I also had to think what i was going to fix for him and the rest of my family. It was going to be easy: brats and potatoes.

Today I wanted to add variety to his vegetable of choice and this is what I came up with: Steamed Potatoes with Melted Brie and Caramelized Onions)

Ingredients for 3-4:

  • 6 medium-sized potatoes
  • 1 brie
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them in 1 inch cubes. Rinse the potatoes well under running water and steam them as you would normally. I am choosing to steam them with Demarleathome cookware as it allows me to steam most vegetables in very little time. I place them into the large round mold. Add a pinch of salt. Place the octogonal silpat on top of the large round and cook the potatoes for  6-8 minutes. IF THE MOLD IS FULL TO THE TOP, COOK THEM FOR 8 MINUTES. IF IT IS LESS, 6 MINUTES IF ENOUGH.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the caramelized onions. Drop 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large saute pan, and warm it up. When the oil is hot, add the sliced onion and cook over medium high until the onions are becoming a nice dark golden color. Set  aside.
  3. Remove the brie from its paper, place it on a plate and cook in the microwave for 2
  4. Divide the potatoes equally among each plate and drizzle the melted brie over the potatoes. Sprinkle some of the caramelized onions and enjoy!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
