I've never met a sweet potato (or yam) in any form that I liked. That sounds interesting. What did they put in the basket, nothing?The only time I actually enjoyed sweet potato was in a Chinese resto. They had been shaped into a lattice work basket for some dish in a "bird's nest". The dish was very good, but that deep fried basket was crispy and yummy and very moreish.
It was a very long time ago. I think it was a variety of stir fried vegis and meats and shell fish that was inside the "bird's nest"/basket. The stuff inside the basket was also very good.I've never met a sweet potato (or yam) in any form that I liked. That sounds interesting. What did they put in the basket, nothing?
Problem is/was you were making Potatoes Romanov. Can't expect much good from those "russkies". The moment I started reading that you were pocking potatoes thru foil, I knew you were going to have foil pieces inside potato.Now I've never baked potatoes in foil before, so maybe I did something wrong.
I found a recipe for Potatoes Romanov which involves wrapping the potatoes in foil and then poking them with a knife or fork so they don't explode in the oven (normally I just poke the potato with a fork and bake it in the oven without foil.
