Russian Smoked Potatoes Recipe


2 bay leaves

1 onion, chopped

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white sugar

1 quart milk

2 cups thinly sliced Italian bread

12 potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 cup cooked ham, sliced


In a medium saucepan, heat 2 to 3 tablespoons of the bay leaf and celery. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup of liquid. Stir in the pineapple, salt and sugar and stir rapidly over a medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, until liquid is reduced, about 25 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in the milk, cheese, bread, potatoes, ham and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Bring to a cooling point.

Remove bay leaves and stalks from pan (recover juice with a slotted spoon) and spoon over the center of potato slices and cheese slices. Chill 1 hour.
