I vaguely followed this recipe (more the technique than anything else) for this side, which I served with a basic panzanella (one recipe here but I just improvised), and a simple sirloin steak that we split, with charred pepper sauce.
1 small basket fingerling potatoes (this was from the market – probably between 1-2 cups)
about 2 tbsp shredded gruyere
1 tbsp butter
chopped parsley (about a tbsp)
chopped thyme (maybe a teaspoon)
Bring potatoes in water to a boil. Cook about five minutes. Drain, cut in half. Salt.
Heat a layer of oil in pan. Place potatoes cut side down and cook, untouched, about 10 minutes over medium heat. Flip and cook another minute or two.
Turn off heat – add butter, cheese, and herbs to pan (cheese will stick – if you like those crispy bits, use my technique. Alternately, just toss cheese with potatoes in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper as needed.
