Yesterday, while strolling through Trader Joe’s I stumbled upon these sweet tiny potatoes in mesh bags. I grabbed three bags and thought they would be fun for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner – a twist on typical bangers and mash. I am hosting a meeting tonight at my house and wanted to prep these early so I had them ready for tomorrow – plus they roasted while I cleaned my house. These are totally fun and easily popped into your mouth – kids love them and they are a bit of a departure from typical fries. You can slice regular potatoes or use fingerlings if you can’t find these little baby potatoes. Perfect for breakfast, a lunch side, snack or with dinner.
This recipe is super forgiving and not strict to follow at all. You can use as many potatoes as you have on hand or need, use as little or as much seasoning as you like. But they are addicting.
Several pounds of potatoes, washed and skin left in tact
Optional: Truffle oil
Rosemary (fresh or dried)
Fresh ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add about 1 tablespoon of salt to the boiling water. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook for about 4-6 minutes. I like to cook them until I can pierce with a knife easily. Drain them. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and spray your sided-baking sheet with olive oil and add your potatoes in a single layer. I drizzle with olive oil and fresh Rosemary. Add to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. I flip them over once golden brown and repeat the process. Once nicely golden, remove and serve immediately or if storing – let them cool first and then place in a tupperware container. Reheat: I just add them to a baking sheet and warm at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes.
Saturday: treadmill easy 4 miler
Sunday: 10 miles outdoor – tried new fuel that left my stomach completely torn apart. I finished my watch at 9 miles and thankfully my husband was just going out to run when I was walking back in. I ran a cool down mile with him. My pace for the 9 was 8:35 and as good as it looked, it wasn’t a good run. It just felt horrible.
That’s it from here. Hope you are all having a great day!
