Horseradish Hashbrowns with Bacon Vinaigrette

- Amanda

Merrill and I both live in Brooklyn, which means that any time an interesting new restaurant opens, we trade tips. For weeks, she's been raving about The Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights. After I went, we decided to both devote our next two blog posts to Vanderbilt-inspired recipes.

Restaurant dishes don't always fulfill our expectations, but that doesn't mean we have to give up on them. When I was at The Vanderbilt recently, I ordered the hangar steak because it came with horseradish hash browns. My dream of slim and shaggy hash browns was foiled when a block-shape potato arrived, looming over the plate. No matter -- I took the flavor idea home with me, flattened them out, and paired them with the bacon vinaigrette from OB Cookie's winning potato soup.

Pick up a hangar steak and fire up your grill, or simply top the hash brown with a fried egg and the bacon vinaigrette. You won't send me hate mail, I promise.

Horseradish Hash Browns

Serves 4

  • 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 8 small white potatoes
  • Salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • Canola oil
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crisp
  • 3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Can't wait to try this. And hit The Vanderbilt on my next trip to NY. Thanks.

Slides show you making the bacon vinegrette with red wine vinegar, but the recipe calls for apple cider vinger. Guess I'll have to try both ways! Darn :-)

You can use either -- and OB Cookie makes her bacon vinaigrette with white wine vinegar. I'll adjust the recipe. Thanks!

Just made these to go with our Sunday brunch, and they were fantastic. Mike said "you can make these any day of the week." I definitely would! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

Lorinarlock, you won't find The Vanderbilt in Park Slope. Even the most rapacious real estate agent would tell you it's in Prospect Heights, along with the above-mentioned James. I'm kind of a crappy neighborhood booster, in that I haven't actually been to the restaurant, but come on, Food52, give Prospect Heights some love.

The recipe, on the other hand, sounds fantastic.

Thanks, Katya! I actually just explored Prospect Heights on my last visit and loved it. I can't wait.

The heat of horseradish plus potatoes plus bacon - what's not to love!

I adore the Vanderbilt (and of course Food 52). Thanks for sharing this recipe. Can't wait to try on my own.

Thanks for the recipe and tip for the restaurant. I have a piece in a group show opening in Brooklyn (in Williamsburg) next month, so will be looking for places to try!

Great -- also check out Franny's, Roberta's, and Egg.

I'll second the recommendation of Egg - it's one of our old faves!

Oh, my lord I love Egg. Their hash browns, incidentally, are a deep-fried potato bomb. An excellent way to start the weekend!

Yum! You could leave a little of that bacon fat in the pan to fry the potatoes in too, yes?

My husband--the horseradish addict--will love these. (BTW, the link to save and print the recipe isn't clickable.)

Yes, sorry, was sleeping on the job. Fixed now! Thank you so much for your many kind messages letting me know when we've forgotten details or links aren't working, etc. We really appreciate it!

Wow. My mouth watered looking at the photo and reading the recipe. I can't wait to try these over the weekend and to try Vanderbilt next time I'm in Park Slope.
