Potatoes are both simple and complex at the same time. Sometimes doing something a little out of the ordinary, makes you fall in love with them all over again. Try this simple potato idea, to add a little something extra to dinner.
2 Russet Potatoes
1/2 C Butter
2 Cloves Garlic
Take a piece of parchment paper, fold it in quarters, then fold it like a paper air plane. Measure from the center of the pan out. Cut the tip off, and the extra. set aside for later.
Peel your potatoes. Cut them in half.
Using a mandolin, slice the potatoes nice and thin, but just a little thicker than a potato chip.
Grate your garlic into the bowl.
Melt your butter and add to the potatoes. Season and toss to coat.
Starting in the center of your pan, layer in an outward spiral. Continue this until you’ve used all of your potatoes.
Cover with your parchment round and press down.
Place the pan on a burner at medium high heat until the garlic becomes fragrant. Bake at 400F for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes on the top just start to brown.
Turn out onto a cutting board and allow to rest for 10 minutes before you slice.
It’s simple, delicious, and good enough to impress your in-laws…it’s the little things in life…
