Smile Appealing Potato Slices

Appealing Potato Slices





Garnish vegetables or cream soups with potato cutouts. Peel and thinly slice a white potato. Use small holiday cookie or hors de'oeuvre cutters to cut several potato slices into shapes. In a small skillet or saucepan cook slices in a small amount of oil until golden brown and crisp.

Bet it would be a pretty dish using yams/sweet potatoes, or puff pastry stars. Another thought for party bites - top the cooked stars with caviar.

So cute! I remember that one of my high school home-ec teachers had a set of veggie cutters, I've also seen them in restaurant kitchens too, but never in a shop. I'd venture to guess that a small enough cookie cutter could be used with a big enough vegetable in place of actual veggie cutters. What would you use to create these??? (Would you just go "free-hand" on the spuds?)

Not sure what a veggie cutter is... but just cut the raw potato, thinly sliced with a star-shaped cookie cutter and saute or bake, sprinkled with seasonings of choice. You could almost do this as a fancy potato chip and sprinkle with feta and lemon juice... I have another recipe - will go search my files.

Michael, thank you. It's more of a garnish thing, to add to veggies etc. - not a main dish. Thinking it would be interesting floating on borscht. Food for thought.

Thank you RMS.

An appy idea - Saute the potato stars (shapes of choice), drain on paper towels, top potato slices with a mixture of:

crumbled feta cheese
lemon juice
lemon zest, finely grated
olive oil
any fresh herbs (oregano, parsley etc.), sliced finely
pepper and salt to taste
lemon pepper

Put them on a baking/cookie sheet and bake till warm.

Using sweet poatoes is another idea, or sprinkling with a spicy potato chip mixture of seasonings (i.e. chili, garlic, parmesan, etc.).

Oops, wanted to share a cool pic:
