Potatoes Anyone?

You will need very thin skinned red potatoes,about 2 lbs, So in a large skillet c/i if possible, heat 1/4 cp best walnut oil, til hot but not smoking, I use med-high heat add the potatoes and saute, shaking the pan to toss from time to time, til the spuds are cooked through and browned all sides, about 20 min. season with salt and pepper, and don't forget the nutmeg fresh ground. add more s&p if needed to Serve sprinkle on 4 finely chopped garlic cloves,1-small bunch of parsley and 1 of chives toss to blend serve.
I love this with a roasted chicken. Or just a green sald, bread and potatoes. Yummy

Are the potatoes sliced or diced or something before sautéing?

I use the red potatoes as small as I can get if I'd like them smaller I cut them in half or quarters.

Think I'll try this for my family, they love potatoes :)
I have a hard time coming up with ideas for things I don't really eat much and this looks like a winner!

Here it is. I find it on the top shelves at the grocers along with avocado and peanut oil.

While The Pirate was here he spotted my one vine ripened tomato. He gave me an idea on how I would eat it this month. I buy just one tomato every month. So I remeved the stem, sliced the tomato rather thin. Some olive oil, sea salt, and rice vinegar. I prefer rice vinegar as it is mild and not an irritant to my stomach. I let it sit for a while. The sea salt brought out the flavor of the tomato. What a difference of what I have had in the past. I just wish I would have had some butter leaf lettuce. I could dunk it in the vinegar. Even though I really can't eat raw foods.

What should I do with my potatoes to go with bbq beef ribs tonight? I have great big baking russets, and ingredients to do pretty much anything with them. I'm sort of leaning toward twice baked, but we have those pretty often. What would you do with them?

If you are tired of baked potatoes I say make those wedge potatoes people were talking in the "Srooms" thread.

We like to do what many Italians call Jumped potatoes, This will make 4 servings. Scrub and peel1-1/4 lbs Yukon golds and cut into 1 inch pieces. Pour 1/4 cup of evoo into a 9-10 inch skillet.place pan over med high heat til oil is super hot,and a piece of potato sizzles when added to the oil. dry potatoes well then add to the oil.cook 2 min.turn potatoes and cook 2 min more. or til lightly browned.say 10 min in all Add salt & pepper to taste. Cover pan cook turning occasionally til done you can feel the potatoes give when pierced with a knife. for more taste add garlic and either rosemary or sage well chopped. to the pan just before you cover it

Well, bf requested twice baked, so I decided to do a fun twist on them. I scooped out the potato while it was still raw, using a spoon with a fairly sharp edge, and shredded the pieces like hash browns. Mixed together some melted butter, sour cream, chives, cheddar cheese, and asiago cheese, mixed it with the shredded potatoes, and scooped it into the hollowed out potato shells. Sort of like scalloped potato that will have a crispy potato skin so you can pick it up and take a bite. Yum!

(They are in the pie pan because I got them started in the microwave and I don't have a square glass pan... )

I do my X2 baked potatoes by cutting them horizontally instead of vertically. It is then easier to sit them in a muffin tin for the second bake. The next time use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the potato. Works like a charm. When I am doing the 2X bkaed ones for a big meal and company, each potaot gets an individual addition. A couple sour cream, some shredded cheese, chives, etc. I put all the scooped out potatoes in one bowl, mash them, then add separately the rest of the ingredients in a smaller bowl.
