Potato Roses

You Will Need:

  • 4 large potatoes (a waxy variety is best for this dish -- Dutch Creams would be perfect, but Nicola and Golden Delight would also work well.)
  • 4-6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh herbs, such as rosemary or dill (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs sprigs to garnish (thyme, rosemary, or parsley are good)

Potato Roses

Can't decide between chips and roast potatoes? You can have both with these baked little beauties! The golden, crispy outer 'petals' enclose a meltingly tender heart. While they may take a little time to put together, the admiring applause you're sure to receive more than makes up for it.

Directions:

Variation:

Try replacing one of the potatoes with the equivalent of sweet potato slices to make two-tone 'rose' petals.
