This is one of my family’s favourite side dishes. Who doesn’t love potatoes, especially when they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside? The best thing is that these potatoes are not even fried, they are baked, so they are also healthy. They go well with everything, especially meats. I personally love them with chicken and often serve them as a side dish for my pollo agglassato.
Ingredients for 4 persons:
4 medium potatoes
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tsp rosemary leaves
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Cube the potatoes in 4×4 cm pieces. Put them in a bowl full of cold water and set aside for at least 30 minutes. This will make the potatoes crispier when baked in the oven.
Drain them roughly and put the wet potatoes in a baking dish with garlic, rosemary, salt and 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Mix well making sure that the potatoes are well coated with oil.
Bake in a preheated fan forced oven at 180°C until the potatoes are cooked and golden.
They are a perfect side dish for roasts or chicken, like my pollo agglassato.
On another note… I am so glad to say that both my parcels for the Online Bake Sale for Japan have arrived to the winners of the bids: Amy (who bought my Almond Cookies for her sister Katy) and Tina from Pinay Cooking Corner who won my Marzipan – Martorana! Thank you so much girls for helping to raise money for Second Harvest Japan! 🙂 Here are some pictures I took before shipping the parcels… 🙂
