maggie's special potatoes

today i bring you my favorite potato recipe. i honestly don’t remember where i got it from or if i made it up myself.

ingredients:
small potatoes – washed and ready to go
fresh rosemary leaves – chopped
1 chopped yellow onion
2-3 cloves of garlic – chopped fine
shallots – sliced thin
extra virgin olive oil
grey poupon
sea salt
fresh ground pepper

step 1: the potatoes
boil the potatoes until soft – not cracked! about 8-10 mins will do depending on the size. drain the potatoes and slice in half or quarters.

step 2: the spices
in a frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and throw in the onions. let the onions sweat a bit and then throw in the garlic and chopped rosemary leaves.

step 3: mixing it all together
throw in the cut potatoes, open sides down. throw in 2-3 tablespoons of dijon mustard. and mix it around until it’s covering every potato. let the whole thing cook until potatoes are brownish and crispy. salt and pepper it up & it’s okay to have burnt garlic and onion bits!

step 4: the best part
in a separate pan – i like using my cast iron – drizzle some olive oil and throw on the shallots. cook until crispy brown. throw this on top of the potatoes when serving.

i like to add a dollop of sour cream đŸ™‚

    Wow, they look good. I’m going to have to try them. I love potatoes too. I really love French Fries and Oven Fries.
