Alternative Potatoes

I have been neglecting new recipes of late due to training flat out for my charity run and time has not really been my own, but I've manage to pull my face up off the ground for 20 minutes to put this up. Here is an oldie but definitely a goodie... Give these a try and they will become a firm favourite!!

Pan Fried Potatoes with Garlic and Rosemary

These potatoes are so fragrant and tasty they nearly become any meals main feature. They will go with any meat and feature in my kitchen once or twice every week.

Serves 4:
1 kg baby potatoes
1 fat clove of garlic
1 sprig of rosemary
Olive oil
Sea salt


¨ Scrub the baby potatoes and cut them into quarters. Place them into a saucepan of salted water and put on a high heated hob. Bring to the boil and turn down for 5 minutes or until you can push a fork into them.

¨ Drain in a colander in the sink and let steam off for few minutes.

¨ In a pestle and mortar pour in a teaspoon of sea salt and a clove of garlic and grind into a paste. Strip the rosemary and finely chop it adding it to the paste, pour in a good glug of olive oil and mix all around.

¨ Pour this mixture into a hot frying pan on the hob and pour in the par-boiled potatoes. Toss it around insuring they all get coated with the mixture.

¨ Shake them around every now and again on a medium to high heat for 20-25 minutes until coloured and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
