Roasted Rosemary Potatoes
Suddenly, all my rational thinking goes out the window, and I just want to mash them up, slather them in butter, and swath them in cream.
So, it helps when I have the ability to reel in all my crazy thoughts and settle into a slightly more realistic plan of action. One way to quell the insanity is to compromise.
How about roasting instead of frying?
Why not throw a few herbs into the mix to lend flavor without fat?
How about a bit of olive oil, rather than all that delicious butter?
Sometimes it works. And I end up with something that's really greater than the sum of its parts. And THAT is an extraordinarily splendiforous thing.
Just take a look at these puppies...
In classic fashion, Peef wanted to name these little beauties "Rosemary's Baby Potatoes" (sister of "Rosemary's Smoky Baby Cheesy Mac")... but, that's really a little much. Isn't it?
The lesson: Rosemary potatoes are a lovely way to tame the wild potato beast without totally throwing caution to the wind. And they're BEYOND easy.
