Mmmm Mmmm Potatoes 23Jun08
Today I bring you my favorite potato recipe. I honestly don’t remember where I got it from or if I made it up myself.
small potatoes – washed and ready to go
fresh rosemary leaves – chopped
1 chopped yellow onion
2-3 cloves of garlic – chopped fine
shallots – sliced thin
extra virgin olive oil
fresh ground pepper
Step 1: The potatoes
Boil the potatoes until soft – not cracked! About 8-10 mins will do depending on the size. Drain the potatoes and slice in half or quarters.
Step 2: The spices
In a frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and throw in the onions. Let the onions sweat a bit and then throw in the garlic and chopped rosemary leaves.
Step 3: Mixing it all together
Throw in the cut potatoes, open sides down. Throw in 2-3 tablespoons of dijon mustard. And mix it around until it’s covering every potato. Let the whole thing cook until potatoes are brownish and crispy. Salt and pepper it up & it’s okay to have burnt garlic and onion bits!
Step 4: The best part
In a separate pan – i like using my cast iron – drizzle some olive oil and throw on the shallots. Cook until crispy brown. Throw this on top of the potatoes when serving.
I like to add a dollop of sour cream
