Here is a fun and attractive way to serve potatoes.
4 baking potatoes
2 tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. fine sea salt
Heat the oven to 425°F. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut a diamond pattern of grooves into the top of each side, slicing not more than 1/8″ or so.
Put the cut-side up potatoes on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 45 minutes, or until tender and golden.
Serves 4 – 8
These savory potatoes are the perfect to serve alongside almost anything.
1 1/2 lbs. baking potatoes (about 3 average-sized), thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tbs. white wine
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbs. butter
2 tsp. garlic-infused olive oil
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, finely sliced to make 4 cups
Heat the oven to 425°F and butter a shallow baking dish or gratin pan.
Bring the sliced potatoes, milk, white wine and salt and pepper to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are tender.
Melt the butter and olive oil in a skillet over a medium heat and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.
Pour the mushroom and any juices into the potatoes and stir to mix. Pour in the gratin dish and bake for 45 minutes, until the top is crisp.
