Potato Clouds @ Dollywood Sat, 07/28/07 1:43 PM (permalink)
Did anyone see the special on Amusement Park Foods? I was wondering about the potato cloud recipe at Dollywood and would it be good for the Vendor s at fairs and festivals? Any info would help.

      ADJ: Same here. I was wondering the same thing. My daughter has a season pass to take my grandboys there. I may have to check it out.

        I have attached a recipe for potato clouds. I hope this is what the poster indicated. I am going to Dollywood to check it out.

          So, what it is is just plain mashed potatoes.

            Somehow I don't think that is it, Paul.

                I've seen a couple of recipes for potato clouds in cookbooks from the 1930's & 40's. They were potatoes mashed with butter, egg yolks, milk or cream and salt & pepper. Then the egg whites were beaten and folded into the potato mixture. Blobs of them were shaped into "clouds" and baked.

                I did make a breakfast variation that had ground ham added to the potato/egg white mixture but a reserved whole egg yolk was nestled in the center of the cloud instead of mixed in with the potatoes. They were baked until the egg yoke set and they had a very fluffy texture. It was too much trouble to beat the egg whites that early in the morning so I only made them once.

                Edited to add that I've never seen a Dollywood potato cloud but am describing the ones I've read about.

                      Since it is Dollywood, My guess is you are spot on. I could not imagine they are selling what I posted but I did not find anything else like you did.

                      Nice job

                        The potato cloud that I was thinkin about was fried like a potato chip. It was 1 large potato sent through a spiral slicer and it came out as mostly 1 long piece of potato. They deep fried the whole potato then topped it with diced tomato and onion white a drzzle of horsey-mayo over the whole thing.

                          I took the liberty of emailing the OP and asking what it was..
                          It was driving me crazy...LOL...
                          This is his answer.....
                          Hopefully, he will also post..All I have to say, is that THIS potato cloud sounds FANTASTIC!
                          -----------------------------------
                          a spiral sliced potato (all 1 piece and
                          very thin) fried like a huge potato chip. They topped it with died tomatos,
                          onions and horsey mayo.
                          ---------------------------------
                          Thanks Larry, for clearing that up...
                          Never heard of one, nor seen one, but would love to have several of them..
                          I agree, it sounds good for a festival food...

                            I have also heard them called "Texas Tubleweeds". I love to get them at carnivals, street fairs, etc.

                                  At Oktoberfest Zinzinnati {and other festivals @ Cincinnati}, they sell spiral sliced fried potatoes called "Kartoffel Nests". I tried to find a picture, but no luck.

                                    That's funny. There's a few places around here from the 50s that serve spiral fries and call them... Suzy Qs!
