One Potato Two Potato ..Great Potato Dishes
I don't know about you but I have a true love for potatoes for many reasons the main reason is there are so many ways to prepare them plus they are Soooo good ....So today I'm going to share with you two of my favorite ways to prepare potatoes.
The first way I like to prepare them is to just make a simple cream sauce with a few ingredients to enhanced the flavors with that being said let the coking begin.
4 large potatoes
2 tablespoons grated onion
1 small clove garlic, mashed (optional)
Sea Salt,White pepper to taste
1-11/2 cups heavy cream
Fresh parsley chopped
Peel the potatoes and and rough chop them, squeeze out liquid. Put the potatoes in the top of a double boiler. Beat in the onion, garlic, sea salt, white pepper, and 1 cup of the heavy cream.
Cook the potatoes, covered, over boiling water until the potatoes are tender and the mixture has thickened, Stir frequently.
Since some types of potato absorb more moisture, it may be necessary to add another 1/2 cup of cream, a little at a time, to get the desired consistency Turn into a serving dish and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and Serve and enjoy.
Gratin of Potatoes
My second potato dish is a classic that is a staple in my house hold and that is the gratin of potatoes they are really super simple to make and the flavors are so good and one of the great things is that it pairs with almost type of protein so come on and try the recipe with me.
Gratin Of Potatoes
3-4 large potatoes, cut in thin slices
1 cup of heavy cream
2/3 cup grated Gruye're cheese
Sea salt, White pepper, to taste
Fresh chopped chives -optional
Wash the potato slices well and dry them on a towel. Pour a thin layer of heavy cream on the bottom of a 9' by 12' baking dish and alternate layers of potatoes and cheese.
Top with cream then add sea salt and white pepper to taste. Cover with foil and place in a pan of hot water this is called a water bath.
Bake at 350 until the potatoes are just tender then check If all the cream has been absorbed, add more cream.
Remove from the water bath, take off foil and replace in the oven to brown lightly. Just before serving, sprinkle with cheese and brown again. Garnish with chives if you lie serve and enjoy.
