So today I decided to try one of my recipe pins because, food. And with a bumper crop of potatoes from the garden, Martha Stewart's Crispy Potato Roast was an easy choice (especially considering I have a mandolin slicer to make light work of the potatoes).
Here is the photo from the original pin:
|Well hello there|
Here is my effort:
|Ready for the oven|
|And 1.5 hours later, yelloooo heaven|
|Look at all that naughty delicious butter|
Not as pretty, and certainly far more blackened than the original but sweet lord, so tasty. I replaced the shallots with garlic, which I added to the butter/oil mixture.
I do think the amount of butter and oil is a bit excessive, next time I will only use two tablespoons of each. Also I covered it for a portion of the cooking time, otherwise it would have been severely charcoaled on top.
Other than that, though, a seriously excellent recipe. I'm slightly horrified to admit that I ate nearly the whole thing myself in one day. Mental note: ALWAYS have guest with whom to share this dish.
