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.

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!
